Jim had such a love of life, he was tremendously devoted to his family, they were his world. His happiness was complete when he met the love of his life, his fiance Robbin.
Jimbo could rarely be seen without a smile on his face, a twinkle in his eye and kindness in his heart. His smile was infectious.
