Jim’s passion was riding his Harley. He thoroughly enjoyed woodworking and art. He loved animals and had a big green thumb. Jim was an avid fisherman and known for his big smile and storytelling. He had a great sense of humor and never held a grudge. Jim would befriend strangers with his friendly conversation. As his good friend David says, “No stranger ever went un-accosted.”

His Celebration of Life is scheduled for April 24, dependent upon pandemic restrictions. Details to be announced closer to the date. Jim will be missed by all.
