He partnered with his parents for 16 years at Adams Pharmacy in downtown Greeley. He later earned a teaching certificate and spent 23 years as an instructor of business at Aims Community College, retiring in 1991. Jim was a dedicated member of the Greeley Kiwanis Golden K. Club. He loved golfing, camping, fishing and was an avid Colorado Rockies Baseball fan.
