He resided for 54 years in Jackson Township with his wife, Maxine (Olson) and retired as general manager for the Massillon AAA Auto Club.  Jim was a Korean War veteran, serving in the United States Navy, stationed in Norfolk, VA. Jim was extremely active in his community, acting as director of the Summit County blood program, past president of North Akron Kiwanis, Massillon Rotary, and a long-time member of First Christian Church in Massillon. He will be dearly missed by his loving family and countless lifelong friends. Jim’s infectious smile and big heart touched many lives over the course of his life. He had a song, magic trick, or story for everyone he met.
