For the past several years he made Greencastle his home.

Jim was a dreamer. He was a publisher, designer and author. He opened My County Publishing, Copy Center and the Greencastle Packing and Shipping company.

Through the years he designed and printed magazines, business signage, menus, advertisements, web pages and videos.

He reached out with his heart in many ways through his county magazines.

His heart ached when it came to special children, and tried to help with Hope's Way as much as possible. He was always there to help anyone.

A memorial service will be held at a future date.
