He was a man of many nicknames, with his wife Diane calling him “Soup” or “Soupy” and his son, JJ calling him “Daddy”. He was a very proud and loving father and husband. His sense of humor would light up a room and those around him would always enjoy sharing a good laugh. Jim had an undying love for fishing and would never miss an opportunity to get out to the lake. Although gone too soon, we are forever grateful to Alcoholics Anonymous for the 20 plus years we were given with him. Truly a miracle.
