He was a graduate of Okemah High School, Ok and worked in the shipping industry for nearly 40 years. He was a Seafarers International Union member which gave him the opportunity to see the world. As a Boatswain, he was the big man in charge. Big Jim was his nickname and he got the job done right. He could make you laugh and steal your heart with his bright blue eyes. He was a wonderful man and was dearly loved.
