   Jim met Bonita Louise “Bonnie” Wolfgram from Madison, NE during the summer of 1962 when she was going to school at NBT College. They dated and were united in marriage on October 4, 1964 and this union was blessed with three sons. The family made their home in the Morningside area of Sioux City.

   Jim worked for the Milwaukee Railroad in Sioux City and North Sioux City from 1964 to 1980 then worked a short time for Burlington Northern. During his time with the railroad, he worked clerical duties in the switch yards and Agents Office and Regional Data Accounting Office. From 1980 until his retirement in 2011, Jim worked as a manager/supervisor in transportation at IBP/Tyson Foods. After retirement, he drove part time for Jensen Motors picking up and delivering vehicles for customers.

   Jim accepted Christ as his Savior at an early age. He was a longtime member of Morningside Assembly of God. He was very active in the church including: teaching Sunday School, serving as a Board Member, greeter, usher, Sunday School bus driver, and project worker. In addition, he played and managed a pretty good church softball team for many years. Throughout the years, Jim had many different hobbies. In his younger years, he enjoyed pheasant hunting and fishing with friends. From age 16 on, he’s always been fond of automobiles including old and new Hot Rods, trucks, Corvettes, SSR, and most any convertible. Jim was a member of the Strollers Car Club and participated and attended many car shows. Above all, he enjoyed anything with his family including vacations, ball games, and BBQ’s. Jim coached little league/senior league baseball during the time his sons were involved and served as President of the Central Division of the Morningside Little League. In recent years, he cared for Bonnie (The Love of His Life) at their home and later for four and a half years at Countryside Nursing until she passed away on March 1, 2017.
