Jim loved to fish and tell a good story. He was an avid reader. He had many friends and was truly a ‘people’ person. He loved to tinker and was often found in a garage or workshop. He loved spending time with his grandchildren, he would tote around his grandkids behind an old lawnmower in a cart or some other contraption he built. He always had a good way to make people laugh and was usually larger than life. He had a goofy, honest, nature that is rarely matched. Jim will be missed by many.
