The Legion152 was where you could find him, Jim has been a long standing member for 20+ years and there is where you would also find him helping out with any occasion that was put forth, volunteering his time or to sit and have a yarn with a beer.Jim love to play darts, cards, and pool, and if you were to ask him what’s the most important thing in his life he would say Yvonne “Bonnie”, his one and only, she was amajor part of his life.
