Jim was accomplished in carpentry and remodeling. He started his own company “JCP” construction and worked tremendously on honing his skills and talents to be successful. He was always busy on independent jobs as well as working for the Denver Urban Renewal Authority. He recently retired and has spent much of his time with his wife, children and grandchildren. Jim loved the outdoors, camping, and site seeing. His favorite spot to spend some time was in Estes Park with his wife Linda, looking for the elk to come out. What Jim really loved the most, was being a Papa to his grandchildren.
A Celebration of Life gathering will be held on November 24th, 2021 at St. Paul’s Community Church located at 8001 W. 23rd Ave. in Lakewood, Colorado. All are welcome to attend and celebrate the life of our “Papa Jim”.
