Jim loved to golf and played as often as he could. He volunteered to work tournaments at the Mountain View golf course. Golf was another way Jim could be outdoors with his friends. He was also an amazing bowler. He maintained an average score of over 200 and even bowled many perfect 300 games. Jim bowled successfully with his buddies in many tournaments. He loved to hunt too but never shot anything but trees, rocks, and creek banks. He wanted to be in the woods during hunting season for the fresh air and solitude communicating with nature.
For many years Jim faithfully mowed the lawn for his church. It was a rare Sunday that he missed sitting in his favorite seat during Sunday services at Mountain View Church of Christ. He never met a stranger and was a friend to all who knew him. He will be missed by all of his family and friends.
