Jim was born to William Chase and Ruth Cain Coale in Baltimore, Md., on April 27, 1934.
Jim served 22 years in the U.S. Marine Corps and retired as a lieutenant colonel. Following his military service, he and his wife, Suzanne, settled in Irmo, S.C., where they lived for 30 years. Jim completed his second career as a manager with Union Camp Corp. at their Eastover, S.C., plant.
In 2012, Jim and Suzanne relocated to the Sun City Carolina Lakes community in Indian Land. Jim's greatest passion was his family.

He also enjoyed hunting and fishing with his eight grandsons, who dearly loved their Poppa. Jim was the youngest of four brothers who grew up together on a farm in Harford County, Md.
