Jim was born to Wayne and Winnie Belle Yount Johnson, March 29, 1937 in Monte Vista, Colorado. Jim graduated from Monte Vista High School and joined the United States Navy. He loved his four years in the navy and the time years he spent cruising in the Mediterranean Ocean. In June 1957 he married his high school sweetheart, Frances Kerr, and from this union came three children and four grandchildren. He loved and was loved by his family and friends. When his children were young, he was involved as a volunteer adult leader in scouting and little league baseball. Jim worked for Western Electric and it's successors, installing Central Office Telephone Switches, for 30 years, until he retired in 1994. He was blessed with strong work ethic, honesty, and was a perfectionist in everything he did. Jim loved to fish, hunt, camp, golf, read, and travel.
