Jim was a life member of the Lansing VFW Post 6132 and proudly served our country in the Army during the Vietnam War. He was a truck driver for 33 years and absolutely loved being able to see various parts of our country. While Jim may have appeared rough on the outside, those who knew him understood he had a heart of gold and a soft spot for animals, especially cats. Jim will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
