Celebration of Life: Jim Barrett

As many of you know, one of Napa Valley's legends, Jim Barrett, passed away a couple of weeks ago. During harvest last year, Jim, and the rest of his and Ric's tennis crew, swung by Karl Lawrence.

We blogged about the office's brief shine of celebrity spotlight then, and would love to post the photos again. So here they are.

Here's Jim holding a painting of himself at the court done by St. Helena artist, Greg De Lucca:

Ric was happy to see the above picture used in Jim's celebration of life slideshow Tuesday at the Meritage in Napa. There were 500 people in attendance. Greg's painting was on display, as well.

Here's the whole tennis crew. At the ceremony, the gang sported their tennis gear and all stood up together as a tribute to Jim.

Jim was their leader, organizing four doubles matches a week. With Jim gone, the crew is leaderless, but will keep on playing in his memory.
