A Rockville resident during most of his time in Maryland, he was a Chapter Chairman for the Montgomery County Red Cross and an aquatic instructor.  Jim was elected as NCSL President and served again later as Vice President.  Jim turned his attention to soccer officiating and was a referee assessor the remainder of his life. He is survived by Kay, his wife of 56 years, of Walkersville; son James of Woodsboro; daughter-in-law Wendy of Woodsboro; sister-in-law Terry and her husband Jim of Silver Spring; and his niece Mary.
