The Passing of Jim Awad

17 10 2009

I found out yesterday that Jim Awad had passed away. Jim was one of the founding members of FINE.

I never did get to know Jim well. In recent years he came to meetings, would be there for the introductions, say hello and then leave shortly after. I would wonder why. I now see in reading his obituary that he was a member of the Westport Y’s Men. They meet at the same time as FINE.

It was always good to see him. I appreciate the fact that he would take the time to stop by and say hello.

Sam Wexler, another of the originals, had this to say about Jim.  “Jim did a lot of volunteer work and was always helping people find opportunities with other people. I remember he was always talking about Save The Children. Good guy!”

Jim’s obituary can be found at http://www.westportnow.com/index.php?/v2/comments/james_h_awad_79/#more

We will miss you Jim. Thanks for getting FINE going 16 years ago so we can all benefit from being part of it today.

Ed.
