Jim served his country in the National Guard for seven years before working his career at Glacier Daido in Bellefontaine for thirty five years. He loved spending his time scraping metal and going to tractor and truck pulls. He enjoyed volunteering at the Walnut Grove United Methodist Church, having hog roasts and cooking for his friends and family.

The family would like to say thank you to his two good coffee drinking buddies, Junior Tevis of West Mansfield and Bill Rowe of Rushsylvania.
