Jim’s career was one of service and duty. He worked as a police officer for the Titusville Police Department, ensuring the safety of his community. Later, he proudly served in the Army National Guard, rising to the rank of captain. His service was a testament to his unwavering dedication to protecting and serving others.
On May 25, 1974, Jim married the love of his life, Donna Varner, and their love story was one for the ages. Although Donna preceded him in death on November 26, 2009, their love and partnership left an indelible mark on all who knew them.
Beyond his professional and military commitments, Jim found joy in simple pleasures. He enjoyed golfing, appreciated the stories of western and war movies, and cherished moments spent with friends and family. His sense of camaraderie extended to his memberships in the Franklin Club and the Franklin Elk Lodge BPOE #110.
Jim is survived by his loving daughters, Jamie Carner and Tracy Connors, and their families. His grandchildren, Emery and Reagan Carner, and Mitchell, Christopher, and Leah Connors, brought him immense joy and pride.
In addition to his immediate family, Jim is also survived by his brother, Robert M. Showers, and his wife, Grace, of Titusville, PA.
