Jim was a joker, and enjoyed telling stories, he also loved being around family and friends, he loved the outdoors in Montana and he was very fond of fishing, and long drives in the mountains.
He was employed by Diamond Lumber mill in Superior Montana for over 20 years until they closed. He worked many different jobs in his life but he loved the mill the best and driving the
loader. He loved to travel and had lived in Montana, Colorado, Ohio, and in Idaho where he met his beautiful wife of 3 years, Barbara. They were married in a wonderful ceremony in Canton,
Ohio... There was many things he was good at in his life, he was terrific at making jerky, and panning for gold.
He was a wonderful father, husband and especially a terrific Grandfather & Great Grandfather. He loved his family very much, and like everyone made some mistakes along the way, But he had the kindness heart and would always give what he could to help anyone at anytime. We were so blessed to have him in our lives and will forever cherish that time. You will never be forgotten, and you will always be loved
