Jim moved to ‘The Villages’ Florida in 2015 where he immediately joined up with many dance clubs such as ‘Sunny Singles’, ‘Sumter Singles’ and ‘Singles N Dance’. He also attended several dances in one of his ‘prize’, self-designed costumes.

“Dad” enjoyed hobbies in art drawings and ‘collections’. He had a ‘passion’ for visiting consignments shops for that special art piece to add to his collection.
