“Jim” IS and was a very social being, he never met a stranger whom he could not have a conversation with, his favorite conversation starter was “ Where are you from?” From stories of his travels as a truck driver, to fast cars and trucks with revved up motors, to his love of collecting unique items and trinkets he would come across. One of Jim’s true assets was his unconditional love for people, friends and family alike. Most of his greatest pleasures came from spending time with family and friends.
