After his retirement (to the golf course) he spent several happy years indulging this passion.  He also enjoyed woodworking and restoring antique clocks.

Jim amazed everyone in the way he lived his life after his cancer diagnosis.  He lived his last days with courage, grace and dignity and of course his dry wit that entertained those around him.

He is survived by his wife, Doris Mead Mangham of McKinney, Texas, daughter Kay Mangham of McKinney, Texas. Sisters, Diane Blake and Husband Jerry of Graham, Texas, Janice Thompson and husband, John of Keller, Texas, brother-in-law, Lawrence Morton and wife, Linda of Keithville, Louisiana.
