He was a charter member of the Kingman Youth Football League. He also participated in Kingman Little League Baseball programs, and Kingman High School Booster Club for many years.

Wonderful memories were made following his sons in Kingman Little League baseball, Kingman Youth Football, Kingman High School football, basketball, baseball and golf games, Phoenix College football, University of Arizona baseball and hundreds of Kingman softball games he watched and participated in. Then came the grandchildren to follow with baseball, football, basketball, soccer, volleyball and tennis games all over Arizona followed by college graduations at University of Arizona in Tucson and Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Jim supported Ford Motor Company with the dozens of cars he bought to follow his family activities for many memorable wonderful years.

Jim requested to be cremated, with no funeral or graveside services.

Those we love don’t go away they walk beside us every day unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.
