Jim was a very proud graduate of The Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and served in World War II in the US Navy. He worked in sales at Taylor Instrument for 34 years and several other companies after that until he retired. He was a very active participant in several theater guilds in the 70’s and 80’s. He later resumed his childhood passion of model trains and was a member of the GGGRS train club. We wish to extend many thanks to the wonderful staff at MM Ewing Continuing Care Center in Canandaigua for their loving care of Jim this past year.
