Wetzel County experienced a great loss Friday, and I’m not talking on the football field. News of Jim Quinet’s death spread throughout the community quickly as we all seemed to know Jimmy. He was a fixture in our community and we will miss him dearly.
As I thought about this man who ran Quinet’s Court Restaurant for years, I wondered. . . is it possible that there is anyone in Wetzel County he has not fed? I would find that hard to believe. The food was good, but as the community talked about Jim the conversation mostly went to his good works, not his good cooking. He was a giant in our community when it came to charity. He would give a donation, offer a free meal, provide a job when needed, and I’m told even a place to stay. What a man. We will miss him.
