Jim loved living large.  Born in Honolulu Hawaii he was retired from the United States Marine Corps where he served as a Russian linguist while stationed in Japan.  His career took him all over the world working on oil rigs in the middle of the ocean.  His love of NASCAR, street racing, motorcycles, guns, models, Rock crawler cars, and restoring old cars kept his life busy and entertaining.  Living the solitary life in the Colorado mountains made his last few years enjoyable.  Out of everything he loved nothing could top his love for his wife Kelly, daughter Heather and his amazing 6 grandchildren and great granddaughter.  They lit up his world like nothing else could and were always top priority in his life.
