Jim is proceeded in death by his wife, Gail Noffsinger, the true love of his life; brother, George Noffsinger Havre, and his parents.
Jim loved the mountains and hunting. When listening and watching him tell a story of hunting camp, you could always find a smile on his face and a gleam in his eye. One of the many traits he instilled in his children was his strong work ethic.
Railroads and riding were a good life.
