Jim worked for Bethlehem Steel for over 30 years. Jim touched so many lives with his love of life. He loved his Harley Davidson and enjoyed taking everyone for rides. Jim had a passion for keeping his yard in perfect condition and enjoyed a good beer back in the day, but most of all he loved his wife Pat. They were inseparable until her passing. Jim and Pat will always be remembered with kindness and love.
