Memories Timeline


  1. Peggy, I was shocked and saddened to hear of Jim’s passing. I just talked to him on Sunday. As you know we were friends for about 25 years, going back to the Dart League days at the Vienna Inn. I regret that I will be out of town this weekend and will not be able to attend Jim’s viewing. My deepest condolences for your loss – he was a good man and he leaves a lot of friends behind. Bob McQuail

  2. Dear Peggy: I can’t express in words my sorrow for Jim’s passing. He and I were colleagues in the early ’80’s and reacquainted as friends when my family moved to Vienna ten years later. Jim always had a sharp wit and great sense of humor. I will always remember him for these merits. My wife, Mary Lou also knew Jim and we both want to know that we are thinking of you and your family. Evan Soffer

  3. The Swartzwelder family: My wife Lynne and I offer our deep condolences on the passing of our freind, Jim. We were associates in the Planning and Research oganization of the IRS in the 70’s and 80’s. All of us always relied on Jim’s sage advice and technical insights, often delivered with droll wit, as we dealt with the problems of the day confronting the IRS. He was a man of wide and varied interests who had a keen intellect which he wore lightly. He will be missed.

  4. Dear Denise and Family, On behalf of Rosemont Forest Elementary, please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your dad.

  5. Peggy, Drew, Denise and Kelly, We are so very sorry the loss your husband, Dad, father in-law and grandfather. Jim was always a pleasure to be around and he was so smart. It was obvious how much he loved his family. Our deepest sympathy for all of you. Love, Linda and Rob

  6. Peggy & Family, It just seems like not too long ago it was 1973 and I was working with Jim, John Burdette, Jim Ryan, Elmer Kletke and so many others at IRS! It has always been one of my most treasured times. God bless Jim, you and your family. Dick Wintrode

  7. Aunt Peggy and Andrew, We are so sorry for the loss of Uncle Jimmy. He was such and interesting guy with so many great stories. He was an uncle that as a kid I always thought was fun, truly an “uncle”. We will keep you in our prayers.

  8. Dear Peggy and Family: I was sad when I read of Jimmy’s passing in the paper; I knew I’d have to call my Dad and tell him the sad news. He and Jimmy had often played together when they were in grade school, and I remembered hearing stories of some of their escapades. Upon hearing the bad news, my Dad was both schocked and deeply saddened. He had kept in touch with Jimmy from time to time through the years, and had last spoken to Jimmy on Oct. 12, 2008. He said they reminisced about the “good ole days”. So on behalf of my Dad, John C. Swartzwelder, I am sending my sincere condolences and will keep you in my prayers.

  9. Peggy Gloria and I were saddened to hear about Jim’s passing. Always enjoyed talking with you and Saudi Jim at the Inn. GBU Tom McCarthy

  10. Swartzwelder family, today I was shocked and saddened to see that Jim passed away in January. He was a fine colleague at IRS, and I always enjoyed his smiles and well-considered thoughts.
