Jim enjoyed the old car hobby from a young boy up until the very end. He participated in car shows, swap meets, and was a member of the Pitcher Club car club. He was in the Army and Army Reserves 1962-1968. Jim retired from Wisconsin Electric after 42 years, and continued to enjoy going to breakfast with the WE guys.
