Jim was best known for his handyman skills. Though he held a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, he would rather build something than sit behind a desk. He was EPA certified and a great electrician. He worked as a police officer for many years in Phoenix and proudly served our country in the U.S. Armed Services. He was a gentle, caring, and loving soul. He loved to watch TV, travel, dine out, and go to the casinos.
He endured this horrible illness with great courage and perseverance. He never complained and maintained his independence to the very end in a way never seen before.
Jim will be sorely missed.
