Jim was an avid hunter, and his hunting stories were as large and grand as he was. He loved fishing and was an amazing fishing guide, even if the only thing we caught were more of his stories. Jim adored his children, Ron, Chad, and Kelly, they were his life. When he started becoming a grandfather, his chest stuck out a little more with each one. Of course, their given names were not quite good enough for him, so he had to give each their own nickname from Pawpaw.
A Celebration of lLife will be held April 20th, 2023 - 6 to 8 pm at the Lead Hill Baptist Church.
