Mr. Bolger was the last of the old Sidney Rd gang. I am sure he had a wonderful Heavenly welcome! We hold lots of great memories from our growing up years. Prayers, peace and comfort as you remember a life well lived.

My brothers and I grew up with Jim as neighbors when Jim was in H.S. I was five years younger than Jim but we had many memories of Jim, Mary Ann and his mom Dorothy and dad Dutch who had played football at X.U.
They were the best neighbors to have, and of course we idolized Jim with his successes in sports, especially football. I remember his dad telling us a story about when Jim was a sophomore in H.S. and Dutch went up to coach McCarthy at a practice and asked him if he noticed Jim had just kicked a 60 yard punt and McCarthy had not. My brothers and I offer our heartfelt sympathies to all of Jim's relatives and friends.
