He was an electrical estimator by trade and a proud former member of the IBEW, Local 1.  Jim was associated with the electrical business for nearly his entire adult life, working for several different contractors along the way.

He was an accomplished soccer player in his prime, who could run like the wind, with a nose for the goal.  He was an overall sports enthusiast who loved watching a game as much as participating within it.  He could run by you on the soccer pitch and out drive you on the 1st tee.

He leaves behind many friends and extended family and will be missed by all who knew him.
