He was employed at Brownings Manufacturing Company in Maysville for 14 years prior to establishing Hasler’s NAPA Auto Parts in Vanceburg in 1979. He worked there until selling the business and retiring in 1998. Jim was baptized September 21, 2009, and was a member of Vanceburg Christian Church.

Jim was a generous devoted father and grandfather, and took great pleasure in playing with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved taking long country drives to admire the scenery and was an avid sports fan; not only watching various favorite teams but also enjoying participation on fast-pitch softball teams, bowling leagues, and golfing with family and friends throughout life.
