He was a bakery manager at Price Chopper for many years. He had an amazing work ethic and was well respected by his coworkers.
Family was extremely important to Jim. He enjoyed spending time together, whether it be a family vacation, or a game of cards at home. He was very involved in his children’s lives, happily coaching many of their teams, and attending numerous games and events over the years. He was extremely proud of his children.
One of Jims favorite places to go was camp. Either hunting with his dad, Jackson, Bob, Dean & Chuck or a quiet getaway with the family, any day at camp as a great day for Jim.
An avid sports fan, he also enjoyed many trips to see the Bruins & Red sox with family and friends. Bringing someone to their first professional game always made him smile.
