Jim was born in Betts Hospital, Easton PA and lived his first 2 years in his grandparent’s home in Bangor, PA before the family moved to Easton, PA.
Chris and Jim met in 8th grade and dated until their wedding in 1967. They had two children; Heather and Seth. Jim made a profession of faith in Jesus in October 1975.
They started attending Bethel in 1977 and became members April 23, 1978. Over the years he has worn many hats including, but not limited to, Sunday School Teacher, Sunday School Superintendent, serving 28 years formerly as a Deacon, and now as an Elder. He and another man started a program for boys, which has developed over the years into AWANA.
Jim also had several occupations over the years including retail salesman, general contractor, Met-Ed employee, and business owner (Financial Advisor). Having retired from Met-Ed and sold his financial business, retirement has been challenging to say the least.
After 51 years of marriage, Chris passed into the presence of the Lord and Savior.
Jim has recently remarried to Shirley, a girl he and Chris had graduated with. Shirley’s husband passed into glory with Jesus 2 months to the day after Chris. The Lord is blessing this new union beyond what either one ever expected. Praise Him!!!
