Jim was a member of the Maplewood Church of Christ for 38 years and was involved in many relief efforts from Angel Food Pantry Ministries and Disaster Relief Programs.

After returning home from the USMC, Jim met the love of his life, Glenda Leora Thomas, who became his wife in August 1970. Jim & Glenda traveled between Oklahoma and Louisiana for his career. Jim & Glenda had a wonderful life, raising two children, Tricia and Cathy.
