He graduated from West Seattle High School in 1942 and enlisted in the Navy where he served as a communications officer aboard a destroyer. He was the first person on his ship to get word WWII was over. He was honorably discharged as a Yeoman first class in 1946, went to business school at the University of Washington, and worked in various capacities for Texaco for 35 years. In 1982 he took a lump sum early retirement from Texaco and invested successfully in the stock market. Up until four years prior to his death he swam a mile every day at the Bothell YMCA which earned him the President’s Fitness Award in 2002. Jim brought intense joy to every person he met.
