Jim enjoyed hunting, fishing and grilling outdoors for his family until his stroke in 2006 however his love of life didn't end with his stroke as he still enjoyed simple things such as rooting for his Redskins every football season and playing video games. He had a quick wit and was always lightning the mood which did not end until the day he died.
