As a young man, he attained the rank of Eagle Scout and later in life was a local Boy Scout Leader. After serving in the United States Army Jim attended the University of Southwestern Louisiana in Lafayette where he received a bachelor’s degree in business. In Colorado he would meet Elizabeth (Betty) Fleck of Pennsylvania, whom he married in 1968. The two would return to Church Point to run the family business, David’s of Church Point, In., a clothing store, and later added a Radio Shack franchise. Jim and Betty raised four children: Elisa, William (Bill), Jules (Jed), and Jaimie, in the Church Point area.
