Jim was a proud graduate of the University of Cincinnati (1956) where he met his beloved wife, Virginia.

Jim was dedicated to the company for over 57 years.
Jim & Ginger loved spending time in their home away from home in Sarasota and he was happiest when on the water & in the sunshine, whether he was on his houseboat on the Ohio River, Steelaway, or his sailboat in the Sarasota Bay.
