He was a proud Navy veteran, stationed in the Philippines during the Vietnam war. Jim was known for his curious nature and his desire to learn new things. He was very musically inclined and was self taught on the guitar. Jim taught his son, Jimmy to play guitar and they enjoyed playing together often. His love of music also made Jim encourage his daughter, Cara into playing piano. He was a 4th degree black belt in Karate which represents the rare martial arts achievement of a lifetime. and he never turned down the chance to ride his Harley. His larger than life personality, quick wit and great sense of humor will be missed by all of his family and friends. Jim led an active and full life and nothing brought him more joy than his family. He was a loving and devoted family man and he will always be remembered for being a wonderful husband, father, son, brother and friend. Jim is survived by his beloved wife of 24 years, Juana; his children: Jimmy and Cara; his step-daughter, Stara; he was big-daddy to: Elijah and Audrey.
