Many loving nieces, nephews and close friends.
Jim was a caring, loving and wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He loved spending time with family and was so proud of his grandchildren. He just loved to hear them laugh. He also enjoyed spending time under the "Tree of Wisdom" with his closest friends, oh the stories they would tell.
Jim enjoyed going to car shows and cruises with his "car family". One of his greatest hobbies was his beloved (and troublesome) 66 Chevy II. Some people may not have known his name, but the knew his face and his car. It brought him so much pride and joy (and many long hours of work).
Jim worked at Quaker Oats in Marion until it closed in 1989, he then worked at Honda until he retired in 2009. He loved his O.S.U. Buckeyes and still cheered for the W.V. U. Mountaineers.
A Gathering of Family and Friends will be held Saturday September 19, 2020 from 1 to 5 pm at Dry Lane Construction, 376 Dry Lane Rd. LaRue, Ohio 43332, all are welcome. Bring a memory and share a laugh and a smile.
