Date Honored: February 2004
Jim was my husband for almost 50 years, and we would have celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in February 2004. He was “Dad” to our five children and “Papa” to our fifteen grandchildren. We were truly blessed with a large family. Each and every one of us has our own special memories of him. He honorably and proudly served our country in the U.S. Navy for 24 years leaving his footprints in many countries and places around the world.
