Jim was born June 11th, 1940 and passed away on May 10, 2021. They lived in Florida for over 20 years enjoying their final years together. Carol loved the outdoors enjoyed gardening and working in her flower garden. Jim loved reading and playing gamers on his computer. They both were avid movie watchers and have hundreds of movies they enjoyed together over the years. There was nothing like watching a good movie for them. They would make family calendars each year including nieces and nephews with birth dates and addresses so everyone would have contact information. These were mailed out each year around Christmas to family.
