      Joann-my classmate-the first word that comes to mind with your Dad is "Gentleman."  His generation, to me, never had to demand respect-they already earned it.  Even when he and my Dad would discuss local politics, and not always agree, they did it with dialogue and remained friends, something sorely missing in 2021.  My deepest sympathies to you and your family.

      All the Buyarskis were special people. Jim and his brother Bob were involved at Transfiguration Church (Holy Name of Jesus parish) Miss them both. Great people. May they rest in peace. God bless the rest of the family.

      Years ago, "Uncle" Jim, as I affectionately called him and his brother Bob took the time to teach me how to become a fastpitch softball pitcher.  I owe the success I had to them and and am deeply sorry for Jim's passing. I cannot attend tonight's viewing, but I want to send along my sincere condolences to the family. He was an outstanding man and will serve the Lord well for the remainder of eternity.

      My sincere condolences on the passing of your father.  My Mother (Katherine Lutz) recently passed away at The Laurels.   Jim was a fellow BINGO buddy.  It was always a good time.  A pleasure meeting him. May he rest in peace.

      I have many fond memories of "Uncle Jimmy".  He was always happy and energetic.  Most times visiting Hazelton I stayed in his house and he was always kind and welcoming.  One time on Christmas Eve morning he had me 'wash my face in the money' to bring prosperity.  He had a wash basin in the bathroom filled with silver coins.  Although it didn't work for me, I always loved his stories and different traditions.  God Bless
