Jim was the loving son of Bob and Becky Wiles and stepped up to become their primary caregiver when Bob had a heart attack in March 2016. Although Jim had his struggles in life, he had a heart of gold, would give you the shirt off his back and loved kidding around with people. Jim was married to Ruth McDonald from 1983-86. Jim’s proudest moment was when his son James Brian Wiles was born Dec 7, 1983. His next proudest moments were when his three grand-daughters: Katelynn, Emily and Chloe were born. Jim helped watch his grand-daughters when James and Aimee were working.
