He then worked for LaValley Fiberglass and transferred with them to Mississippi in 1982. Jim started Lape Industrial Fiberglass in 1985 and retired in 2005 moving back to Camas. Work was his hobby and he enjoyed spending time with his family.

He is survived by his wife, Beverly at home; sons, James Lape, Jr. of Oakridge, TN and Brian Dawson of Atlanta, GA; daughter, Jaime Lemmon of Washougal, WA; brother, Gary Lape of Camas; and ten grandchildren.
