He was a member of the Wynne Church of God and read his bible every night. Jim enjoyed watching sports 24/7, especially the Razorbacks, hunting, fishing and bragging about his catches! His favorite pastime was watching his kids and grandkids play ball, never missing a game. Jim was a hard worker, he was tough, but a very nice guy, always kind to everyone he met. He had a lot of common sense and was a practical joker, always smiling and loved by everyone who knew him. His favorite pastime was being with his grandchildren and the Lord, his theory was God, family, and food! He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
