Jim enjoyed fishing and passed his passion onto his daughters and family. He loved music and played in several country/rock bands. He could play just about any instrument by ear but focused on guitar, keyboard, and vocals. He was considered by family, as Mr. Fix-it and was the go to person to get any job done.
