He was born on August 6, 1930 in Rochester, New York a son of the late Elsie and Elwyn Lindsay. Jim graduated from Medina High School in 1948 and was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1951 during the Korean War. Stationed in France, he served as an Army medic and was discharged in 1953.

He also worked for Bramer Electric and ended his career, retiring in 1993 as an electrician at Harrison Radiator in Lockport.

He volunteered for Meals on Wheels, was a charter member of the American Legion and was a long-time member of the Medina United Methodist Church.  Jim enjoyed playing euchre, he “never lost 2 games in a row”, and enjoyed discussing current events with his friends.
