Jim passed away after a short illness, Wednesday, July 29, 2009, at Genesis Medical Center–West Campus, Davenport. James Frederick Bishop was born in Davenport, son of Dr. James F. and Lenor Mae Bishop Sr. He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, John Bishop.
A graduate of Davenport Central High School in 1967, Jim received his business degree from the University of Iowa. He worked as a building contractor until he retired. His passion was politics and NASCAR, skiing, motorcycles and he was an avid fisherman.
Jim could always be counted on, as evident by the way he always lent a helping hand to anyone within the community. We will always remember him as a wonderful friend and loving uncle and brother.

Our deepest gratitude goes out to the caring staff of Genesis Medical Center. We appreciate the love and care of his close friends, Al King, Wayne Wright, Joe Kreyer who watched over him all these years.
