Beloved husband, father and Papa, Jim lived his life to the fullest. Upon graduating from the University of Missouri, he was commissioned into the Marine Corps by President Harry Truman and honorably served during the Korean War. After his discharge, Jim worked as a systems engineer, primarily with The Mitre Corporation. He and his wife, former Navy nurse, Greta Myers successfully raised five children. Jim and Greta were world travelers, visiting six continents and living in three.
Jim is survived by his wife Greta, his five children: daughter Debbie Reese, son Craig Myers and wife Maureen, daughter Denise Knox and husband Ed, son David Myers and wife Barbara, and daughter Lisa Camp and husband Chuck. His ten grandchildren include granddaughter Melanie Morrow and husband David, granddaughters Megan, Laura and, Kaitlyn Myers, Danielle and Samantha Knox, and Jessica Camp, and grandsons Bradley and Mitchell Myers, and Henry Camp.
A Mass to celebrate his life will be held at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Pinellas Park at 11:00 am on April 25, 2018.
