Jim was born on August 27, 1963 in White Settlement, Texas to Richard Roy Adair and Johnette Fulcher Adair.
Upon graduating high school, he completed a four-year IBEW Apprenticeship and then went on to work as a journeyman electrician with the IBEW local 116. He attended Fort Worth Free Methodist and Life Church in Fort Worth. He was a part of the IBEW, Aledo Athletics, SOS and TASO.
Jim’s youthful spirit was fulfilled by umpiring baseball for various youth and high school leagues. In his younger years he coached baseball and football for his own children as well as for other family members. His love of the game and giving back to the children was a true joy. He loved to be outdoors and was often seen working with his dog Rocco. He was known for being quite the handyman; always willing to help friends and family on various projects and repairs. Always one phone call away (if his phone was charged) to help assist with any project you needed some help with. He loved to watch his grandchildren participate in their own interests including football, baseball, umpiring, hunting and band.
He is preceded in death by his son, Lucas Adair; parents, Richard and Johnette Adair.
