Jim worked for the Burlington Railroad for many years until he sustained a back injury.
Jim and Becky Alley have been together several years. They enjoyed playing cards and traveling to Mahnomen for concerts together.
Jim never met a stranger; he had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh. He was an excellent card player with a great memory. Jim was found to be lucky and loved to have fun.
Recently, Jim and Becky, along with his two brothers, his sister, and their families had a three-day family get-together in Las Vegas. They shared many laughs between one another throughout the weekend. The trip included many card games, that involved razzing one another.
Jim is survived by his life companion, Becky; his son, Jason; his daughter, Kristin; three grandchildren; his sister, Beverly; two brothers, Donnie and Alan; as well as his nephews and nieces.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Tommy and Deloris House; and his brother, Larry.
