"Jimmy" was a fan of Star Trek and loved his music, especially Ted Nugent. He also loved anything pertaining to cars. He was a "body man" by trade, but he loved car detailing as well as fixing cars, and installing stereos. He was an amazing artist and loved to build models. NASCAR was one of his passions and he was a huge fan of Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jim was always willing to help anyone who needed an extra hand with something. From his small grill to the big pig roasts he used to host a long time ago, Jim loved to cook when friends and family got together. He had a huge heart and loved his family very much. He would do anything for his wife, children and grandchild. He loved to laugh and have fun with everyone. Jim will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.
