He is the 6th child of eight children (three boys and four girls). Jim graduated from Marysville High School in 1951. He then joined the Navy for two years and was a fireman aboard a ship during the Korean War. When Jim got out of the service he came to Everett and went to work for the phone company for 30 years.
