Jim was retired from the USPS after 28 years of service. He was a practicing Buddhist and a vegetarian. He enjoyed boating, fishing, traveling, playing the guitar, and spending time with his family. 
Jim is survived by his devoted wife Shannon Couch, children Naomi Couch, Kelly Couch / Veronica, and son Phillip Couch. Grandchildren Corey / Sarah Couch, Jorden Gillespie / Christina, and Skylur Dixion. Step-children Tamara, Preston and Alexa Watts. Also brothers David Griffith of FLA. and Brion Griffith of Chicago, and numerous grandchildren. BFF’s Karen Oberkrom, Kay Meyer and David Perry. 

In keeping with Jim’s wishes there is no service but a celebration of life will be held at a future date.

They always held hands while shopping. They Jim & Shannon always stop by at the floral shop just to say hi. Always with both of them smiling from ear to ear. Lovingly looking at each other. So very lovingly...such a loving couple. I will miss sharing that love. Thank you Jim....see you soon Shannon.
