Jim was an Army veteran, businessman and die-hard sports fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was always full of life and loved people. His family meant the world to him, especially his loving wife, Linda. Everyone Jim met was touched by his bigger than life personality and heart, they considered him a friend and loved and admired him.
Jim always had stories to share that some may say were slightly embellished, but he was the type of man who always left you guessing. He had a huge heart and was loved and adored by all. His sweet Lilly girl, his 5-year-old yellow lab, is lost without him. He touched so many lives and he will be greatly missed.
