Jim was a 1958 graduate of Kokomo High School. He received extensive millwright training at Indiana Vocational Technical College. This training served him well in his career at Chrysler as a millwright until his retirement after 32 years of service. Jim was also employed at Cuneo Press, Ready Mix, Todd Seed, and was a courier for Bright National Bank. His top priority was his love and care for his family. He and his wife Nancy raised and sold angel fish with their business Angel Acres. They traveled to craft shows to display their beautiful stained glass creations. Jim was fascinated by John Deere Tractors, country western shows, and NASCAR. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and was a Shriner. Some of his favorite activities were driving his golf cart to visit with family, mowing, and competing with his daughter-in-law for the best looking lawn. He loved long term camping and fishing at Big Fish Campground. He hosted a weekend fundraising event called Soda Fest, a fund for families of local sick and injured children.

He is survived by his loving wife, Nancy O’Blenis; son, Rex Allen (Sandy) Davis; daughter, Amy (William) Brown; grandchildren, Cherrie (Clint) Harris, Jamie Davis, Zachary Davis, Bailey Davis; great-grandchildren, Serenity, Harmony, Xander Allen, Ryder, Gage Rex, Jasper, Max, and Mackenzie.
