Jim was an accomplished master carpenter for about 60 years beginning when he was a very young boy, following his dad and papaw around their home carpenter shop. Beginning in his fifties, Jim became a dedicated and committed friend to Bill W. and Dr. Bob. He worked tirelessly and self-sacrificingly to help others achieve life balance, and as he always said, to achieve a place in life where they could say "I like living this way!" Jim loved his family, many friends, his "baby girls- Daisy, Tina Ballerina and Squeaky-cat", as well as his devoted wife of forty-two years. Jim is preceded in death by his parents; "little" sister, Maureen "Marti" R. Butt, older sister Barbara Roy; grandmother Velma R.
