Jim passed away peacefully in Hospice Care at Henry Ford Hospital with his loving wife, Donna, at his bedside March 6, 2020. Jim’s hobbies were fishing (telling fish stories) hunting (the big buck got away), and gardening. Jim’s gardens were breathtaking, not a weed in sight. Jim graduated from Sexton High School in 1961, attended Ferris State College and received a BS degree in business management. He was employed at GM for 30+ years and retired as a manager in 2006. Living life to the fullest, Jim endured a long illness that eventually slowed him down, but he was always a fighter and never gave up.

I enjoyed playing cards at Gary and Margaret Hollis' house where I was introduced to Jim and Donna. Those were great times filled with laughter and fun. I'm truly sorry for the loss of Jim.
