     Jim served 4 years in the United States Navy.  He graduated from Penn State University and went on to a 33 year career in electronics engineering at General Electric in Johnson City NY.  He retired in 1992 and enjoyed years of flower gardening, golf, water volleyball, fishing, jogging, bicycling, and swimming.  He was an avid fan of Pittsburgh and Penn State sports teams.  Jim was a helping hand to neighbors, friends, and church members in need wherever he lived, also serving his church in innumerable ways. 

     God gave Jim a special place in his heart for the underprivileged, especially third world children.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Samaritan’s Purse, Love A Child, or International Children’s Fund in honor of Jim.
