Jim grew up in Oklahoma in the 50s and 60s, joined the Navy in 1963, served 6 years and three tours of Vietnam, and received an honorable discharge in 1969. In 1967 he married Debbie and they spent 44 years together until her death on September 18, 2021. Jim was an artist, a painter of wildlife and landscapes. He enjoyed watching Major League Baseball, old westerns and TV shows about the supernatural. He loved to go fishing, eating spacy foods, sweets, and most especially he loved meeting new people. A humble, spiritual, no-nonsense man with a winning personality, a wonderful sense of humor and a heart of gold. He was always ready to lend a hand or offer words of advice. His proudest years were when he was serving his country.
Sail on, dear friend, you will be missed immensely but we celebrate your most glorious gain. May you enter in his rest and receive your eternal reward.
