His son John has said of Jim “…he was a cop, a Seabee, a veteran, a court officer, a carpenter and a mechanic. He was an architect, an electrician, a gardener, a plumber and mathematician. He was a husband, a father, a grandfather and a brother. He was my role model, advisor, teacher and friend. He was ‘Grampa Jim’ to my little girls, and they loved him with all their hearts… he planted trees, and taught teens to drive. He played Scrabble, built houses and watched war movies. He was brave, resourceful and tough as nails. He spoke little, but when he did it was something intelligent or funny, often both. He was not one for flights of fancy. He was a decision maker; a guy who got things done.”
