Reguardless of what he may have done he does not deserve for you to talk shit about him after he was just killed...nobody does. Nobody is perfect and everyone does wrong at one point in their lives. I think it is you that needs to learn respect and morals. You just dont do that, would you want people around you talking about the wrong things you have done when you pass...i dont think so. You are one of the most ignorant and disrespectful people i have ever heard of.
I didnt know jimmy well but had talked to him quite a few times and every one of those times he was one of the sweetest people i have ever met. I know alot of people that did know him really well and they all say he was one of the most caring and helpful people they knew he did not deserve the treatment that he recieved, noone does, may you R.I.P jimmy and all of those who knew and loved you may you find strength and peace while grieving.

I just read through the above blogs and it confirmed to me that leaving western pa was one of the smarter decisions made in my life.
Let me start of by saying sorry, to those whom I am about to offend...f_ckin hillbillies.

Have you people read what you wrote?

It is not the fault of the bar owner that a 40 year old man was in his establishment (frequented by college age patrons); most likely drunk, most likely looking for trouble, etc.

I agree with "I Knew Him Well"...I knew him and can confirm his alcohol and steroid use.

It is all crap is the same doucheb*g as I knew him well. He's on the kittanning paper site saying the same garbage. He doesn't live far away. If you post from a mobile it shows up with a different area. I'm not in Eagle Colorado.

Way to spell coroner, stupid. If the bar didn't exist, the fight never happens.

If you can confirm everything you say, confirm your real name! Stand by your comments like a man.

I'm sad to read all of this. I'll always remember Jimmy's smiling face & joking personality. I just can't wrap my mind around never being able to see him again. Not everyone may have liked him, but you shouldn't be speaking badly of him after something like this happens! Especially posting it on social media where everyone, including his family & closest friends, will read it. If you don't have anything nice to say...don't say it at all. I'm pretty sure that you would have never said those horrible things to his face. Why say them now on here? He didn't deserve what happened to him, regardless if you liked him or not. RIP JIMMY! I'll see you again & I hope you'll be standing there with your big smile!

Martyr, no. You say you new him,and if that is the case you would know that this guy would give the shirt off his back if you needed it. Addict, you really didn't know him that well!! DO us all a favor and please keep your comments to your self. Especially at this time. I guess timing wasn't your strong point in life when it came to your mouth!!

DID YOU KNOW HIS FAMILY? YEAH, YOU ARE RIGHT IT WAS BEST THAT YOU LEFT WESTERN PA. THINK OF HIS FAMILY PRIOR TO OPENING THAT HOLE AT THE END OF YOUR NOSE THAT I'M SURE HAS GOTTEN YOU IN YOUR SHARE OF TROUBLE. IF NOT FOR JIMMY, AT LEAST SHOW RESPECT FOR HIS FAMILY.

I am showing him and his family the same respect that they showed their own FATHER upon his untimely death.

You have a wonderful day.

Why the need to slander a deceased family member online? That's really manly. Just move on with your life. Get off your government paid for phone and do something useful with yourself.

Just read the paper. Not surprised at all that one of those scum bucket Rosenbergers sucker punched the guy, there all known for being dirty like that, that kid would never face someone man to man. And for the yellow cowards that kicked him while he was knocked out, need the same treatment. They don't need life in prison that's the easy way out. These people need sent to a gas chamber. That is what they all deserve.

Thank God for the State Police. If the local yocal Keystone Cops of Kittanning would have been soley in charge of this investigation perhaps this might not have come so quickly.

At first it was a one on one (which anybody who knew Jimmy knew it wasn't true) now it's not 2 not 3 but 4 people.

Also good to know that there were some good people in Kittanning willing to do the right thing although I have no doubts some of this was kept quiet.

Jimmy's being laid to rest today. At the very least his family will have some comfort that these cowards are brought to justice and there are some good people and good police still left.

In addition the Wick City Saloon was quick to distance themselves from this event then why is one of those arrested 18 years old? Was he also in the bar?

Anyways good for the Police both state and local that they got to the bottom of this as difficult as it might have been

You people are a trip..."At first it was a one on one (which anybody who knew Jimmy knew it wasn't true) now it's not 2 not 3 but 4 people"...you are just confirming my point, he looked for trouble. Too bad he found it!!!

Look at all the manly comments from "it is all crap". Using a fake name to slander deceased relatives (even though I doubt he/she is related). Freakin troll.

Wonder why they didn't lay out their FATHER, James Sullivan, as they are Lil Jimmy? Their Grandmother, his mother, never got to say goodbye to her only son?

Maybe they realized they made a mistake last time and they didn't want to do that again. Why don't you call your "family" and ask them instead of whining about it online under a fake name?

Manly your arse pal!

I have no idea what you're talking about nor do I care to know. It's obviously a family matter and you obviously have an issue with them. Perhaps you should have taken this up with them and not somehow justify Jim being beaten to death by 4 cowards. I saw 5 women heartbroken yesterday when I visited them at the funeral home, grieving and mourning as having lost someone as special as Jimmy.

Show some class.
