Jim retired from a long career in Personel Management with Safeco Insurance Company at age 55. In 1981, he moved to Oroville from Sunnyvale, CA with his first wife, Jane. Here, they began pursuing Jim's dream of building his own house. Jim became involved with the Lions Club, S.I.R.S.'s, Gleaners and several card groups.

Jim grew up in Watertown, NY and joined the Army after high school to serve in WWII. He then married Jane Ludington in 1947 and began attending Syracuse University on the G.I. Bill. He graduated in 1951 with a degree in Business Administration, and they moved to California.

After Jane passed away in 1994, Jim married Joline Sweet in 1997.

Jim is survived by his wife, Joline; and sisters, Marilyn Hill and Virginia Weldon of New York state; and his sons, Donald of Oroville and David (Gayla) of Cupertino, CA; and his grandsons, Brandon Wegner and James Hibbert.
