On April 1, 1956, Jim married Norma VonEssen at St. Paul Lutheran Church in rural Hooper.

In early 1961, Jim and Skinny Larson started Frahm/Larson Transfer; they transported livestock together through most of the 60s.

He and Norma traveled to different states over the next few years as he worked at Pebble Beach Golf Links, The Boulders Golf Club, Cherry Hills Country Club and Spokane Country Club. In 1999 they settled in Bella Vista, Arkansas where they lived until 2006, when they moved to Lincoln.
