Jim Vitu passed away after getting into housing. We were so lucky to have interviewed him a couple of weeks before he died. He was in his late 50s and had only recently gotten off the streets. He spent so many years on the street, and finally found some peace and a place inside for his stuff. He was such a nice gentleman to everyone who gave him a helping hand. The college students over at John Carroll and Case Western Reserve were all fond of Alabama Jim and visited him every week.
