Jim was an active member of St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church, as well as Downtown Rotary Club, Tangier Shrine Club, and Methodist Hospital Board of Directors. He was also a Board Member of Guideposts, New York; a long-time member of National Association of Personnel Services; an active member of the Republican Party (national, state, and local affiliates); and a 32nd Degree Free Mason. Jim’s involvement with all these organizations reflected his strong Christian faith and his belief in the goodness of people.
He was a devoted husband of 71 years to Marjorie, and their marriage continues to be a model for family and friends whom Jim regaled with marital anecdotes as well as the retelling of the “costly” honeymoon trip to Des Moines, Iowa in 1947.
Anyone who knew Jim, loved Jim; and he loved them. With his positive attitude towards life, Jim influenced the lives of family, employees, and friends. For 94 years he had a great and fruitful life, and he is an example to many of how to live a God-filled life. As a mentor and teacher, and as a father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, he would listen, guide and help when needed, offering advice, comments about loving and caring for one another, and encouraging a positive outlook for each day, almost until his last breath.
