He always enjoyed reminiscing about the "good old days" with his brother, especially little league. Jim was involved in showing dogs. He was very proud of the champion Cocker Spaniels he bred, but more importantly the happiness that came to the families who got their puppies. As per Jim's wishes there are no visitations.
