Jim was fascinated by everything, but his loves were the railroad and area postcards. After retiring as an auto worker from Chrysler, his perfect day was driving where the road took him and talking to whoever was on the way. The Lord Blessed him with an abundance of days like this plus a wonderful blended family. Jim touched many people with his smile and the twinkle in his blue eyes.
