He was a member of First Baptist Church Brownfield. Jim worked as a union journeyman carpenter. He loved to fish and hunt with his best friend, Jeff Aly. In his younger year’s he was an avid coon hunter and raised grand champion coonhounds, always had a good rabbit and bird dog. To say he caught a boat load of fish would be an understatement, caught some monster catfish one 69 lbs. and a 103 lbs. out of the Ohio River. Jim was happy when he had a rod and reel in hand but most of all when he could be with his grandchildren.
