James retired from the Air Force in 1990 after 20 years of distinguished service, retiring as a Senior Master Sargent. As a resident of Danville, Indiana, he began a second career with Rolls Royce, retiring after 25 years.
Jim very much enjoyed his retirement years. He loved tending to his garden and building beautiful wood-working projects, especially when he could find a reason to buy more tools! Jim most enjoyed spending time with his wife, grandchildren, and friends and family…and always hosting a good party!
