Just talked to BOB , Jim's brother. This is what I know.
Jim, most of the time would ride his bike in the park on a bike path but yesterday because his pickup was in the shop he rode in the neighborhood. Sometime shortly after 11:00 A.M. a passerby saw him laying in a yard several blocks from home and called 911. When the Medics and Police arrived they could find no ID but he did have his cell phone. The Police just pushed the send dial hoping to get someone. They got JANET at work and told her that they had picked up someone that had had a heart attack and wanted to know if she knew anyone who had a belt buckle that had the word Grandpa on it. Of course she did and they told her to which hospital they were taking him. Bob seems to think that he was DOA but they did try to resuscitate him. They will do an autopsy.
James married Janet Vivian NOVAK, daughter of John Frank NOVAK and Vivian Fern CRAIG.
