Jim was born in North Dakota, which he called “Gods’ country”, on September 21, 1935 to Max and Mary Heiser. He met Barb in Valley City, ND during high school. Upon graduation, Jim enlisted in the Army, married Barb, attended the University of North Dakota on the GI bill and earned a degree in Electrical Engineering. Jim and Barb had three children during that time. Jim retired after a successful career at Cooperative Power Association.

Throughout his life, Jim enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, family vacations, cruising with friends, golfing and playing Black Jack. He rarely missed Sunday mass.

When Jim was diagnosed with Alzheimers, he met the disease with dignity, grace and humor. This was an immense blessing to his family.
