As a young man Jim served in the US Army in the early 1970’s then served in his home church in Placerville for a number of years before traveling to Colorado.
He met and married the love of his life in Colorado Springs. They served together teaching Sunday School and other various roles.
The work he did with the Royal Rangers teaching young boys brought him the greatest fulfillment of any work he had ever done. The family that was created among the men that served in the Rangers has lasted through the years.
His devotion to family was unwavering but above all his love for God was first and foremost. His greatest prayer was that all his kids and grandkids would meet him in Heaven.
