Jim was a graduate of Webb School in Bell Buckle, Tn. then attended Georgia Tech University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering. His life’s work was one of complete dedication to God and his family. His commitment was always to provide on so many levels. God gave us the privilege of sharing this wonderful man.

Jim was a big part of Coker UMC. He was a gifted teacher who graced many of the various Sunday School classes with his knowledge. He also was a vital part of the Agape Choir which sang at the 8:00AM service in the Sanctuary. His smile and laughter have been missed during this past pandemic year.
