Jim was a devoted employee of IBM for 33 years. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend. To know him was to love him and he never met a stranger.
He found great joy in even the small details of life and that joy was contagious to all around him. He loved the outdoors, sailing, family vacations at the beach and golfing. His fun loving spirit will be missed by so many.
A funeral mass celebrating Jim will be at 4 p.m. Thursday, November 13, 2014 at Brown-Wynne Funeral Home in Cary. Visitation will follow the service at the funeral home.
