He served four years in the United States Navy during the Korean Conflict. He retired from Westinghouse with 28 years of service. Jim enjoyed singing with SPEBSQSA Chorus and a barbershop quartet. He traveled around the state singing at events. He was such a good singer he got injured running from the women groupies. His first band was Matt and the Has Beens, in which he was the lead singer and played the harmonica. He was an avid golfer and had a hole in one at the age of 85. There were so many volunteers for pallbearers, but we couldn't find a casket long enough.
