He worked most of his career for United Engineers/Raytheon/Washington Group. One of the highlights of his career included his work on the Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant in New Hampshire.
On August 6, 1955, Jim married the love of his life, Margaret Cotton, and together they were the parents of twins. They shared 67 years of marriage together. He loved his family with endless, selfless devotion.
Jim was first and foremost a man of God, and his deep desire was to honor and serve Him. He faithfully attended Ardsley Bible Chapel, where he served as an elder for many years.
