Jim was a lifelong member of VFW Post 7754 in Fairport and Hungarian Culture Club in Fairport. He loved his faith and his church, Zion Lutheran in Fairport. He spent many many hours there doing Gods’ work, which was just about everything, too numerous to mention. Jim was quite the jokester and storyteller.
