Jim Gainey – A True Superman

I’m using a copy of the recent Action Comics #1000 cover to pay tribute to the memory of real life Superman, Jim Gainey.

Jim died January 11, 2016 at the age of 34 of colorectal cancer. Jim was my cousin Maureen’s son. Here’s a pic of Jim with his wife Catherine and the kids, Shamus and Finn.

 “I had an amazing life. I regret nothing because everything I did made me who I am. I’m proud of the family I came from. I’m proud of the people I call friends. I was lucky enough to meet my soulmate and have her family become my family. Most of all, I’m so proud of my boys and I love them more than air.”

Jim Gainey – December 2015
