He will be remembered for his love of camping, fishing, hiking and joining friends and family in song, dance and guitar playing. An avid reader of history, he was also an experienced golfer. Jim volunteered for and served on the Boards of a variety of local and regional non-profits including, most recently, the Zoning Board of Concord and the Beaver Meadow Golf Course Advisory Committee. Most important, Jim will be remembered as a devoted husband and father, and a man of integrity, leadership and humility. His abiding love for his family and three generations of OMDG families sustained him always.“In the quiet hours when we are alone and there is nobody to tell us what fine fellows we are, we come sometimes upon a moment in which we wonder, not how much money we are earning, nor how famous we have become, but what good we are doing.” A memorial gathering will be held on Squam Lake later this summer, a date to be announced.
