Sending my condolences to the Wiley family. Always enjoyed working ball games with Jim. We would catch each other a few times a year. Got to see him this past winter at a basketball game at LO. Such a good guy.
Sending my condolences to the Wiley family. Jim was my teammate and manager for the Ossineke baseball team. He was a tremendous athlete. He was the ultimate State Trooper, fair in every way. He was one of the good guys, gone too soon. Randy Beattie, Presque Isle
