Joe Jim Newby was born in Collbran, Colo., on April 2, 1935, to parents Howard and Ida Newby. He married Helen Newby on Feb. 12, 1966 in Las Vegas. Jim loved antiquing and taking camping trips with the family, and most of all, his antique tractors. He was a strong family man and was happiest when family was present. Jim had a strong work ethic; work was his number one pastime. In Jim's words every day was a work day. He was never idle, and when he wasn't working, he wanted to be entertained.
