Jack Sim passed away October 23, 2020 at the age of 85. His 3 books about old gas pumps and one about air meters vastly increased the knowledge available in our hobby. Jack built an extensive collection of gas pump and air meter literature. His research and collaboration with other experts are the basis of most of what we know of the history of the pumps and meters we love to collect. His contributions to our hobby will live on.

Jack was always good to me and I tried to always cooperate with him in any way I could. He will be missed.

Truly a legend in the hobby. Always fun to talk to at the shows. His expertise will truly be missed, as it was an asset to all of us. Prayers go out to his friends, family and his wife, Cindy.

Jack goes to Gas Pump Heaven with his Bible in hand and joins a lot of other collectors we have lost of late. At least they'll have lots to talk about. We will miss his knowledge and straightforward replies back here. Thanks for the education Jack and rest easy.
