Jim always looked forward to his next round of golf. During the winter months, he patiently waited for the Spring, so he could get out on the fresh greens. He was proud of his family, always cherishing every moment with them. Jim always enjoyed socializing with his friends at many parties or out on the back deck enjoying a cold beverage and some tunes.
