He was united in marriage to Helen L. Darr in 1951. Jim worked at the Monroe Table Company for over 40 years. He was a member of the Colfax United Methodist Church and the Mason's. He was a skilled woodworker, enjoyed fishing and dogs, but his greatest enjoyment came from spending time with his grandchildren at their activities.
Those left to honor his memory include his daughter, Nancy Holdefer of Colfax; a son, Randy Thomas of Mt. Pleasant; and three grandchildren, Jeremy Holdefer, Jonathon "Bubba" Holdefer and Cole Thomas.
