He is survived by his wife Gail, his two children James Andrew Lucas and Michele Anne Agnes; four grandchildren Timothy James Agnes (TJ), Brooke Elizabeth Agnes, James Alexander Lucas (Alex), and Ashleigh Renea Lucas; and two sisters, Mary Gibson and Peggy Milligan.

Jim had a long rewarding career with the National Security Agency that spanned over 30 + years.

Ned and Darlene Gould: We had times! Trick or Drink at BA. Lobsters cooked at home. Clocks at BA. Ski in Kitzbuhel. Kase Schitznel at Maxilraine. Beers at the last chance. Oh what times! What wonderful memories.
