James Sr., had a variety of jobs: the Blair Theater, Food Mart, Johnson Monument, Rock Island Railroad, the Cuba Elevator, ASCS/SCS office, and other odd jobs.
Jim enjoyed coon hunting in his younger days. He liked fishing, and motorcycle riding with his friends that belonged to the ROMEO club (Retired Old Motorcyclists Eating Out). He and Alice enjoyed putting jigsaw puzzles together on cold winter days. He also had a hidden talent of playing the guitar and banjo. Jim was an avid golfer; he spent many warm days at the Belleville Country Club practicing golf, and he competed in various tournaments.

He is survived by his children, Julie Bradshaw of McPherson, Kansas, and James Davidson, Jr., of Topeka, Kansas; one sister, Virginia Koesters of Georgia; three granddaughters, Ashley, Harliegh, and Abigail; six great-grandsons; nieces, nephews, and a host of friends.
