On September 2, 1960 Jim and Ann were married in Glasgow. His career as a chemical engineer took him and the family from Scotland, Wales, England and to the USA. Jim enjoyed travel and visited many countries in Europe, North America  and South America. His love of travel meant that he and the family visited 48 States; often with his bicycle on the back of the car!
