Jim Hollingsworth

Post by JWL115C » Sat Jul 21, 2012 7:14 pm

I just received my June-July issue of the 'Road Map', the newsletter of the North Texas Region of the CCCA. In the issue was some sad news about Jim Hollingsworth.

From Haden Vandiver (via a Packard Club e-mail):

"Jim Hollingsworth's health is failing and he has relocated to Edna, TX and is now living with his brother Bill. Jim is about 82. His new address and phone is 312 Sunset Dr. - Edna, TX 77957, (361) 782-2115. He is not able to talk on the phone very long. He suffers from a lung disorder and is on oxygen. A "thinking of you" card would, I am sure, be much appreciated. His niece might be a good contact for health updates: Sarah Kahanek (361_ 550-7486 (cell)."

Jim is a long-time and avid Packard enthusiast, owning and restoring many Packards. He wrote the book on the 1940 models: "1940 a Pivotal Year". It is a must have on the bookshelf of anyone interested in Packards, regardless if a 1940 owner. I have been fortunate in meeting and visiting with Jim at the Salado meets, and we have managed to share more than one breakfast. He is a true gentleman.
