Jim was an avid reader of any and all categories. Jim and his wife were devoted Phillies and Eagles fans and enjoyed watching the games together. Antiquing was also a favored activity as Jim loved looking through old memorabilia. Jim enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, known to them as "Pop-Pop Moose".

The family would like to thank the staff at Tunnell Cancer Center and Beebe Hospital for their compassionate care.
