James “Jimbo” as he was known by friends, spent the past few years living with his son. He started most mornings with his traditional “muffins and milk” with his grandson Mathias. Jimbo loved being outdoors and spending time with his grandbabies. His favorite activities included fishing, spending time in the woods, “tinkering” with small engines and taking the grandkids for a ride on the latest project he had been working on. Whether it be a tractor or go-kart, the kids loved it! Jimbo was always willing to lend a helping hand. He once drove three hours to Columbus , Ohio on a moment’s notice to assist his oldest daughter with a car repair. Often times he could be found helping an elderly neighbor with house and landscaping upkeep. Jimbo was always there when anyone needed him. He had a huge heart and cared deeply for his family and friends. Jimbo was a great father and will be missed dearly.
