Jim was the kind of man that could brighten up any room that he walked into. His “I do what I want” personality was always evident, whether he was brewing beer, drinking beer, watching a Blues game, or enjoying the lake. Jim could accomplish anything he wanted no matter how difficult or how many obstacles were in his way; this attitude, “I will win, it’s just a matter of how many bodies are left in my wake,” guided him through every aspect of his life. Yet, he was still a guiding Uncle, Coach, and coworker, an encouraging friend, and a compassionate son, husband, and father. Jim will be sorely missed, but his memory and love will never be lost or forgotten.
