A native Siouxlander, Jim grew up with his five siblings in Lyons Park. In his youth, Jim was a Cadet Major and Honor Cadre in the Civil Air Patrol. He graduated from Central High School in 1971. He attended St. Joseph’s Nursing School.
Early in his career, he served as a flight nurse on Marian Air Care, and later worked in intensive care at Marian Health Center (later Mercy Medical Center), where he had a reputation for treating patients and families with compassion. Though he never thought of himself as a teacher, he enjoyed helping new nurses learn the ropes of patient care. He and his wife, Kathy (married 1982), volunteered at local elementary schools and assisted adult ESL learners at a community center.
Jim was passionate about local sports, especially the Hawkeyes. Spending time outdoors was one of his chief pleasures; he enjoyed riding his bicycle, bird-watching, bison-spotting, hiking, and traveling with his wife and family. His love for his three grandchildren was as enormous as it was obvious.
Survivors include his wife, Kathy; their children, Mike, Jeff and Rebecca; his grandchildren, Harper, Atticus, and Huckleberry; and his siblings, Ken, LeAnne, Lorri and Steve.
He was preceded in death by his parents; stepmother, Susan Noble; and sister, Lisa.
