He loved watching his children and grandchildren grow up and was always there for them. He taught through his actions and words. He also showed his love and support by his presence. He rarely missed an event to cheer his family on.
He was very strong and feared nothing but was gentle and soft spoken. He was a humble soul who had a knack for making you feel welcomed, accepted and loved. He was wise and would share his breadth of knowledge and wisdom when asked or needed. Jim loved babies and children and did all he could to advocate for their well-being.
