Jim worked for the EPA until 2004 for 44+ years as a Biological Lab Technician, Computer Specialist, and Union President. He enjoyed his job as it took him to many different cities in the US and especially because it was there where he met his wife, Sandi. Some of Jim’s work accomplishments included sending fish to the moon and having an article regarding the history of the Newtown Fish Toxicology Laboratory published in one of the 50th anniversary edition of an EPA newsletter. Besides his unending love for his wife, he loved his Lord Jesus Christ. He was an active member for almost 40 years at Ninth Street Baptist Church, and many years at St. Paul Community United Methodist Church. Jim actively worked with the youth of both Ninth Street and St. Paul and loved to listen to his wife sing in the choir and play handbells. He also served on many church committees. In addition, he supported and enjoyed helping Habitat for Humanity as he was able for many years. Jim loved animals and had many dogs and cats throughout the years.
