Jim was a life-long resident of Lombard.  He had attended Pleasant Lane Grade School, Lombard Jr. High, and was a 1978 graduate of Glenbard East High School.

Jim was an Electrician and a very proud member of I.B.E.W. Local #134.  He had been a Boy Scout.  He enjoyed fishing, was part of a home Texas Hold ‘Em Card group, and was also a cherished member of the ‘Breakfast Club’.  An intelligent and engaging conversationalist, Jim also loved to tease and brought humor to even the most challenging times of his life journey.

Jim had celebrated 36 years of marriage to his high-school sweetheart, Sandy.  Together they enjoyed their family and friends, dogs, and most especially their two grandchildren.

“Sully’s” keen wit, infectious laughter, and easy going nature will be missed by many.
