Raymond “Jim” Stavinoha – April 2014



Jim is in his second go-round as a Knight. He initially joined years ago when he was a student at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio. He’s retired now following 20 years in the U.S. Army and another career that culminated with him working for a manufacturer of scientific lab equipment. Jim also retired from the Army in 1989 as a major. He grew up just south of San Antonio in the small town of Jourdanton. Jim met his wife of 45 years, Sharon, on a blind date at a fraternity party. She works as a nurse for a neurological practice in Mansfield. They have three grown children- Jennifer (42), Tracy (39) and Corey (35)  – along with four grandchildren. The Stavinohas have lived in Cedar Hill for seven years. Jim looks forward to playing golf, often at Tangle Ridge in Grand Prairie and also in Kerrville near where his brother lives.
