Also, many nieces and nephews. Jim worked at Greenwich Collieries and retired from Blair Sign Company. He was a member of Prince of Peace Church.  Jim was an avid hunter and fisherman who loved spending time with family and friends at his camp in Potter County or in a duck blind on the eastern shore.  A proud and devoted husband, father, and grandfather, he was always ready to cheer on his children and grandchildren on the soccer field, at a basketball game, or at a dance recital alongside his wife, Doris. In more recent months, Jim found a great appreciation in researching his ancestry and genealogy.  The family extends a very special thank you to the wonderful and compassionate staff of Palliative Care and the ICU who cared for Jim during his final days.
