He was married to Theresa Schumacher on November 14, 1955 in St. Benedict’s Catholic Church. To this union five children were born: Rita, Brenda, Randy, Fay, and Rick. Together they worked for several years south of Glen Ullin, until 1959 when they moved into town and purchased the Cream Station. They operated it while raising their children in Glen Ullin. Jim worked as a foreman for many years with F&J. Jim was proud to live at the Marian Manor for the last four months, residing in the building that he oversaw the construction of years ago. He also helped build Glen Ullin High School and many other projects around North Dakota.  Jim was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Lions, Knights of Columbus and The Eagles. He enjoyed carpentry, gardening, cooking, hunting and fishing.
