When he was five, Jim's family moved to Jameson, Nebraska where he attended country school and his family farmed and raised cattle. In 1933 they took seventeen days to herd their cattle to a farm southwest of Coon Rapids, Iowa. In 1940 his parents moved to Williams, Iowa but Jim and four of his brothers and sisters remained in Coon Rapids. On May 19, 1939, Jim was united in marriage with Mary Frances Monroe at Guthrie Center. One son Larry was born to this union. Jim worked at Robinson's Garage in Coon Rapids before moving to Williams for two years and working at a garage there. He then moved to Guthrie Center where he worked at Hagan Chevrolet, moving back to Coon Rapids in 1950. After Mary died in 1952, Jim and Larry remained in Coon Rapids and Jim worked at Rees Station and 16 years at Hi-Line Chick Co. He operated the garbage route from 1963 to 1971 at which time he sold it to his son Larry. He continued to help Larry until 1989 when his leg was amputated and he retired.
