Jim was passionate about theater, said Fran Pesch, director of the Playhouse FutureFest program who appeared opposite Lockwood in the 2018 production of Late in the Game. (He) was fully invested in FutureFest. Those few years that Jim was not actively involved in a FutureFest show, he would be a weekend pass holder. The regulars at FutureFest are a special group, a kind of family. It was always nice to spend the weekend with them at our annual reunion, to get together, watch and talk about theater. Jim may have enjoyed this socializing aspect of FutureFest as much as the productions of the first FutureFest in 1991 and for the next 28 years (my daughter) Annie and I had the opportunity to work with Jim as a director. or Castmate in 12 shows. Our memories of Jim echo all that have been shared. He was friendly, sociable, a talented actor and director. I will always be grateful to Jim for choosing me to play Emma Goldman in Assassins at the Dayton Theater Guild. Non-traditional casting was a rarity in Dayton in 1995.

Jim was such a wonderful item at the Dayton Playhouse, said Tina McPhearson, vice president of the Playhouse. He and his family have made so many contributions to theater over the years. As an actor and director, he was generous and intelligent. Her sweetness and her big hugs will be missed by all of us.
