Jim joined the U.S. Air Force during his senior year at Cullman High School. He served for 22 years and 6 months, achieving the rank of Chief Master Sergeant. He served in the Berlin airlift and was a veteran of the Korena War and Vietnam War. He loved his country and was involved in Alabama politics and served as a previous chairman of the Cullman County Republican Party.

After retiring from the Air Force, Jim ran his own business, Hamrick Electric, from 1970-1983. Jim was a remarkable provider. He bought his parents their first home while he was serving in the Air Force by working a second job. He also bought a home for his in-laws when they retired and moved to Cullman.

During his last days he was surrounded by his family and also received loving care from special care givers: Kathy Parsons and Krystal Henson.
