James was a loving father, grandfather and friend. He was an adventurous soul who loved riding up to Big Bay on his motorcycle, traveling, playing with his cat (Fluffy), and most of all spending time with his family.
James spent his childhood traveling to military bases. He then spent his working years as a handyman but was most proud of the work he did installing flooring.
Everyone who knew Jim and the stories he told, knows he lived one hell of a life and will be forever missed.
