Jim was born in Kansas City Missouri where he resided with his parents and three siblings. After graduating he served our country joining  the Navy and doing two tours of Vietnam between 1965-1968. Afterwards he found his passion in sales and marketing where he enjoyed a long career working as a general manager for radio stations and publisher of several local newspapers. After retiring from a successful career, he and his wife, Sandy traveled extensively through Europe visiting many countries, making friends, and soaking in the love of the culture.

Jims passions were his family,  his rose garden, baking pies, good ole rock and roll music, watching and attending the Seattle Seahawk games, and attending his grandchildrens activities.

Jim was a natural leader and he led a strong beautiful family. He was always willing to help others however he could. His generosity  will be carried on through his family.  Jim was well known for his humor and making others laugh and smile which he did well.

He will be missed dearly, may he rest in peace.

A celebration of life will be determined at a later date with a time and location.

The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Jim’s sister, Janet, Jay and Kathy Mosser with Sunset Bible Church, Nicole with hospice, and all of the wonderful medical staff who assisted in his care. Thank you!
