Jim served in the Air Force and received an Honorable Discharge with the rank of Sergeant. After his military service Jim attended UW – La Crosse where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree.
Jim was a member of Bible Evangelical Free Church in Tomah. He loved participating at his church where he was a thoughtful, kind and generous friend to many. He enjoyed drives in the country, visiting with family and friends, fishing and treasure hunting with his metal detection equipment.
