Jim was born in Seattle to Evelyn Mae (Ward) Lockrem and Seph Reuben Lockrem. A graduate of West Seattle High in 1964, he earned an Associate Degree from Highline Community College in 1969. He served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam and the Reserves and was honorably discharged in 1971. He worked for Union Pacific Railroad from 1970 – 1996. His passion for trains was evident in the brilliant layout he created in his home of 50 years in the Delridge area. He liked music and ballroom dancing. He also enjoyed reading, kayaking, hiking, biking, rollerblading, and RC model airplanes. He lived simply and donated generously to charities, particularly to animal welfare. Jim is survived by his brother, Bruce, and his niece, Christy. In honor of Jim’s memory, please consider gifts to PAWS in Lynnwood (https://www.paws.org/) or the World Wildlife Fund (https://www.worldwildlife.org/).
