True to the Hammer way, Jim never met a stranger, and if you met him, you remembered him, he was a true character. Jim will be remembered by his many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews as “Santa Claus” at the yearly Christmas eve gathering at sister Carol’s house, thougth at the time the enthralled children knew he WAS the true Santa !
