While in the Air Force, he trained and functioned as a Slavic crypto linguist. Jim was very versatile and could learn new skills quickly. He was a car mechanic before he started working at the International Paper Mill in Ti. He started in the labor pool and worked his way up to become an Electrician,
Besides being good at his job, Jim was a master at life. Jim was loyal, respectful and content with the simple things. He was not a man of excess. He loved his family and the outdoors. He loved hunting and fishing. If you had a question you'd ask Jim. If you wanted an answer, he'd make you work for it. Jim had a great eye for photography.
