Jim began his professional journey in 1963 when he joined Sears and Roebuck as a repairman. For fifteen years, he diligently served the company with his technical expertise and dedication.

Additionally, he was a proud member of the Pennsylvania State Fox and Coyote Hunters Association-a testament to his dedication to preserving wildlife and fostering friendships among fellow enthusiasts.
