Condolences to the Williams family. This comes as shocking news, I grew up with Jimmy. We shared many hilarious side splitting moments. From the North and South side trestle parties to the local Oneida watering holes. I was fortunate enough to run into Jimmy at the Pop a Top on my last Oneida visit, it was like old times, catching up and laughing about the old days. You will be missed my friend! Peace.

Condolences to the Williams family , I can't imagine the loss you are feeling. I knew Jim long before he became Schemp , and I can't believe I won't see him when I get back to Oneida. We started school together on Washington Ave. , played sports together and partied in high school , played softball for Jumbo's with the rest of the Williams clan , not to mention some crazy experiences on the golf course. We'll pop a top for ya Schemp. RIP
