#128) Jim Avera, Librascope Photo Lab, Passes.

Today, I received the following e-mail message from Georgine Archer:

"I received a phone call yesterday, September 15, 2015 from Jan Tempesta Sandiford. Jan said that Jim Avera’s grandson informed her that Jim passed away this morning in Tennessee. She said that Jim had gone to Tennessee for an annual family reunion. Because he had not been feeling well, his grandson drove him to the reunion. The day before, they spent visiting all the places he remembered from his youth. Jan said that Jim will remain in Tennessee because that is where he wanted to be buried.
Jim worked in the Librascope Photo Lab from 1959 to 1984+. He attended every Librascope reunion from 2000 to 2014."
