Jim graduated from UCA with a degree in BBA Management. He was active in student life, serving as president of his junior and senior classes, a member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, and named to Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities. After college he served under now deceased Congressman Wilbur Mills in Washington, D.C. He returned to Arkansas to participate in his family farming operation and went on to a career in business and financial loans.
Jim enjoyed keeping informed of current affairs and political discussions. He was a devoted Razorback fan and was amazing at recalling and reciting the statistics regarding various players. He enjoyed visiting with family and friends and especially his friends at Immanuel Baptist Church of Little Rock where he enjoyed fellowship and worship for many years.
A memorial service is tentatively scheduled for Monday, May 13th at 11am at Immanuel Baptist Church with a lunch/reception to follow. Memorials may be made to Immanuel Baptist Church or the Carlisle Alumni Museum.
