He loved life and people and beer in a small glass. The last words he spoke were 'I have had a wonderful life.' Jim was a member of the Fraternal Order of the Aerie Eagles #145, the B.P.O. Elks No. 90, and REAC. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Memorial service, 7 p.m. Saturday, Apr. 13, Montgomery & Steward Chapel with Pastor Francis Forgione officiating.

  1. Jim was searching for his birth family and we are so glad he found us. Being around him was like being around older family members that were gone. He had the same presence and personality I grew up with–love of family and people. He also had the same dry sense of humor my Dad and Granddad had and most of all he had the gentleness of his Mom–and he loved to dance like his Mom–and he loved to read like I do.. Whatever we gave to him, he gave it back to us many times over. I am so glad he found us. Donna Abert
