He shared that passion with his wife and his favorite way to spend quality time with her was to go on a motorcycle ride. It didn’t matter where they rode, as long as they were together. Jim had an unwavering love for his family and spending time with them was always very important. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, football, and wrestling. He coached his kid’s sports and was their number one fan. Jim was often a man of few words, but always spoke with kindness and intent.
