If you were lucky enough to know Jim, you know he had a quick wit and a smile that could light up the darkest of rooms.  He had a true love of people and never met a stranger. Jim was an excellent cook and was always happy to share his recipes. He was an avid bowler, great dancer, a motorcycle enthusiast and loved to buy, repair and sell things - always leaving things better than when he found them.  Most of all, he loved his family over all else and they loved and adored him.
