Jim co-owned a logging truck until becoming a rep for Blue Ribbon Tea Company, then ran a gravel truck business until retirement. Community interest prompted him to run for Mission Council, where he served from 1978 – 1987. An avid camper and fisherman, his trips to Bella Coola are legendary. Later in life, as a member of the Valley Wood Turning Club, Jim turned bowls, made beautiful cedar chests, tackle boxes and other gifts that are deeply treasured.
