Jim served his country as a Merchant Marine during World War II. He was a journeyman pipefitter and lifetime member of Local 211. He was a charter member of Pine Drive Baptist Church and loved studying the scriptures. Although he was a man of few words, he had a heart of gold. He loved his family, gardening, tinkering with cars, big band music and traveling all over the world.
The family would like to thank Texas Home Health Hospice and Dr. Pavuluri for their compassionate care. We would also like to thank Mary Jane Ramirez for her loving care of our father.
At Jim’s request, no service will be held.
