Jim grew up in Fort Wayne, IN and graduated from Fort Wayne Central High School in 1954. After graduation, Jim served in the United States army. Following his honorable discharge he returned to Fort Wayne where he worked several part-time jobs while attending night classes at Indiana University, Fort Wayne campus. During this period Jim met and married, Alice Jane Baumgartner. They were married in January of 1959 until her passing on October 8, 2009. Shortly after they wed Jim & Alice moved to South Bend, Indiana where he began his career in the retail industry with Robert Hall Clothing Store. After several promotions & moves, he was assigned as general manager of the Robert Hall store in Springfield, MO. It was during his time in Springfield that Jim once again pursued his dream of completing his college degree. He attended night school at Drury College (now Drury University) in Springfield on the GI Bill, while working full time, and received his BA in History in 1968.

In keeping with his appreciation of higher education, Jim began his college & university bookstore management career in the late 1960’s at Southwest Missouri State College and then Drury College both in Springfield. His career then led him on to Eastern Montana College (now MSU Billings), the University of Texas El Paso, Mount Hood Community College (Oregon), Montana State University, Bozeman and Oregon State University, Corvallis. Jim retired from his extensive career in June 2000, as CEO of Oregon State University Bookstore, INC. Shortly after retirement, Jim and Alice moved to Richmond, IN and later to Bloomington, IN. Not being one to sit still, Jim continued working during his retirement years. He served as the Interim Director of the Wayne County Historical Museum in Richmond for a year, in addition to a part-time position at a local retail store. Upon moving to Bloomington, Jim joined a group of retired businessmen who mentored new students in the IU School of Business. Even after totally retiring Jim often talked about how much he missed work. He would frequently say, “I loved every job I ever had, each one brought something new, exciting & challenging to my life”.

In addition to thoroughly enjoying his family & profession, Jim had a passion for reading, especially about history. He liked exploring new areas where he lived, and very much enjoyed traveling throughout the US and abroad. He was an avid sports fan, especially basketball and baseball.

Jim met his second wife, Terry Dignam Halloran, through the Bloomington Newcomers Club. They were married on January 8, 2011. During the early years of their marriage, Jim got to realize another dream of his, traveling to Europe to experience some of the history he had read about for many years. He and Terry had the opportunity to visit a number of European countries during this time. Jim’s amazement with the art, architecture, history, people and beauty of the surroundings was evident every day. He repeated time and time again…”this is all so wonderful”.

She delighted in preparing meals for others to enjoy and was an excellent host. It was said of her by her family “Mom cooks up a storm” and she wanted everyone to have plenty!

Most importantly was her love for Jesus and how she showed that love to all and taught others how to love! She was a generous giving person who would do anything for anyone and will be missed by so many.
A verse that she lived by was Matt. 25:40 ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
