Jim was the owner and operator of the B&E Clothing Store in Hartford for many years. He was also employed at the jewelry stores in Hartford (until its closing) and Dowagiac, as well as with James Heddon Sons in Dowagiac. Outside of the workplace, Jim enjoyed flying and had built his own ultralight aircraft and was a member of the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association). He also loved to hunt, fish, and ride snowmobiles and motorcycles.
Jim is survived by his three siblings – Wells (Connie) Edgerly of Hartford and Daisy (Glen) Baham, both of Hartford, and Tim (Judy) Hann of Holland; along with numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
