Jim was born in Picher, Oklahoma, on September 8, 1926, to Edward and Fannie (Long) Cornog. He joined the US Navy at age 16 and was stationed in Washington, DC, where he met the love of his life, Martha Huntt. He served during World War II in the Pacific aboard the USS Pamina from 1942 to 1945. Jim was Meat Manager for Giant Food grocery stores in the DC Suburbs for 32 years before retiring in 1989. As a member of several churches over the years, he served as a Sunday School teacher and Deacon. He was a long-time member of Franklin Heights Church in Rocky Mt., VA. Jim loved the Lord and never hesitated to let anyone know and to share the Word wherever he went.
