After graduating from Arlington Heights High School, he served in the US Army, stationed in Korea. Later he attended electronics school and founded Hoot's Television Sales & Service, which he owned and operated for many years. He married his sweetheart, Marilyn Sue Madden, in 1953 which began a marriage that spanned 69 years. Jim and Sue went on to have four children, five grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. Jim devoted his life to supporting his family and providing his children with a good start in their own lives. Jim enjoyed hunting, fishing, reading, listening to music and telling stories.
