Jim was born in Columbia, SC on May 7, 1943 and attended Dreher High School. He graduated from The Citadel in 1965 and earned his law degree at the University of South Carolina. A proud veteran of the armed forces, Jim served in the Korean War. His professional life was rich and varied. A named partner in several prominent law firms as well as a lobbyist for financial institutions, Jim was greatly interested in the political life, participating at both the local and national level – a proud member of the “Peanut Brigade”. He served on the board of numerous non-profit organizations and was a devout parishioner at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. An avid hunter and fisherman, Jim spent years as a SC Wildlife Commissioner. He also enjoyed traveling, country music, baseball and finding the perfect barbecue sandwich. Gregarious and generous to a fault, “Quack” will be missed by many.
