He graduated from Salem High School in Salem, OR.  Jim worked on the family farm most of his life and when the family sold the farm he started working for the Hopper family at the Mann Ranch and LHT in Adams OR, where he worked  until he retired.

Jim spent his free time with family and friends playing in the mountains and hunting.  He loved driving and walking in the mountains and watching the wildlife.  He also cherished time spent in the mountains with his dog Izzy, and his best friend and long time companion Betty Roberts, hunting mushrooms, deer and elk.  Jim and Betty were together for 38 plus years until Betty passed away.  When Betty passed away he was heartbroken.
