Born December 29, 1949 in Burbank, California, to James G. & Vivian Rose (Chadwick) Zook. He married Linette E. Hailman on June 9, 1969 at the First Baptist Church in Frankfort and she survives.
James was a graduate of Clinton Central High School and lived the majority of his life in Clinton County. He was a tool & dye maker at Federal Mogul for over 30 years, retiring in 2011. James was baptized at the Woodside Christian Church. He was past president of the Union at Federal Mogul. He loved to golf, and was an avid Chicago Cubs fan, traveling the United States to watch games. His greatest joy was taking care of and spending time with his grandchildren and great granddaughter, even if that meant he was their “uber” driver as he would call it. With a lot of hard work and love, James and his family built the log cabin that he and his wife live in.
