He was employed by Nash Finch Company for many years and later the Grand Island Public School system as a custodian.

Jim enjoyed bowling, playing pool, cards, and going to the horse races. His Parkinson’s slowed him down considerably and eventually he was forced to move to the nursing home.

He is survived by his sister & brother in law, Barb & Mike Galles of Pocatello, Idaho, brother-in-law, Roy Tiff Sr. of Ravenna, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Vee Tiff, and a nephew, Roy Lee Tiff Jr.
