Jim was a member of South Heights Assembly of God Church.  He was proud of the fact that he took flying lessons and received his pilot license while still in high school.  He never lost his love for airplanes.  He also enjoyed old steam engine trains and classic cars.  He enjoyed traveling and there were many wonderful memories made of family vacations as well as the ones taken as a couple after the kids were grown. His favorite music was the big band sound. He would sit and listen to it for hours at a time. As long as Jim was able, he took great pride in his cars and keeping his yard immaculate.  He also enjoyed putting up Christmas lights and he always had a beautiful Christmas tree.


Jim loved his family with all his heart and always did the best he could for them.  He was always anxious to get up on Sunday morning to attend church.  We will miss him greatly but know we will see him again in Heaven.  We love you Jim.
