Jim Bradbury, a member of the San Diego chapter formore than 30 years, passed away recently. During his time with the SanDiego chapter, Jim wore many hats, but he gave 100% devotion to eachand every one.Jim served several terms as the Chapter secretary at a time when no oneelse wanted the job. Although the level of detail that Jim applied to theposition made some people crazy, there is no doubt that his patience andpersistence benefited the chapter in many ways.Over the years, Jim gave that same dedication to the positions of chapterVice President, President and several committee chairmanships includingContinuing Education and Standing Rules. In each position, Jim set astandard for what could be, and improvements for the chapter resulted fromeach one.In recognition of his many accomplishments and contributions to the chapter, Jim was made anHonorary Member and in 1999 he received the chapter's B.K. Taylor Memorial Award for outstandingservice.To say that Jim will be missed would be an understatement, but it is individuals like Jim, whosedevotion and dedication to IPSSA, have made this the best pool service organization in the country.Submitted to IPSSAN by SD Chapter Honorary Member John Silcox
