Celebrating a Beautiful Life Together

He was a 32nd Degree Mason and a Life member of Charles A. Durand Lodge.  He was an "Elf Khurafeh" Shrine Clown (Weewil) for over 40 years.  He retired from General Motors V-8 Engine Plant after 33 1/2 years of service.  Jim was a recovering alcoholic with 22 years sober and had dedicated his life to Alcoholics Anonymous and helping other Alcoholics achieve sobriety.
He was an avid fisherman and a deer hunter and he loved to travel.  Most of all he loved " clowning around" with his fellow joey's.
Dianne & Jim were married on July 18, 1981 and he was a loving and devoted husband.
Jim had five children, 3 boys and two girls.
Dianne had two children, 1 boy and 1 girl.
Together we worked tiredlessly and lovingly to blend and raise our family and then move on to enjoy our life together.
We traveled extensively for many years and live full-time in our travel trailer for 17 years staying 6 months in the south and 6 months in Michigan.
In 2007, we retired our life on the road and permanently lived in our home state of Michigan.  We lived our life to the fullest and we loved one another
