James enjoyed tinkering in his garage, woodworking, small engine repair, fishing, camping, boating, and spending time with his grandchildren. James was an avid accordionist and button box musician, but his lifelong passion was Harley Davidson Motorcycles. He was a loving husband, father, brother, grandfather and friend.
