Jim was born and raised in Rhode Island, the youngest of 6 children. Jim served honorably in the United States Navy. He was discharged in Norfolk, Virginia and made Virginia Beach his home.

He is survived by his daughter, Abygale Engelhardt and her mother Rebecca Counterman; his brothers, David, Steven, Robert and Thomas and his sister Karin; and also by his Uncle Walter Little and Aunt Carol Little and Uncle David Engelhardt. He was the proud godfather of Emily & Kevin; and he is also survived by many cousins, nieces and nephews and too many best friends to count.
