Jim was an enrolled Tribal Member of the Wyandotte Nation. Our Dad was happiest when he was in nature, and he loved a good bonfire. The Ponderosa Kids will also remember with fondness the times sitting around the bonfire talking. One of our Dad’s long-time hobbies was BBQing; he loved to “Burn Some Meat”. Dad we know you enjoyed your last Burn.
