Jim was known as a Mr. Fix-It, be it plumbing, electrical, or anything that needed repair. He was always willing to lend a hand or come to the rescue for anyone in need. Cooking pigs was a specialty as he enjoyed catering for many years. He loved riding his motorcycle, had many hobbies with woodworking as his passion. He spent many younger years in Canada where his family had a summer cottage. He was an avid Washington Redskins fan and enjoyed his Sunday football. Most of all he treasured time with his grandchildren and family. He will truly be missed.
Friends and family are welcome to attend a graveside service on Sunday, August 28th at 11:00am at Oakwood Cemetery 1975 Baird Road Penfield. A celebration of life will follow.
