WSGA's Jim Core

  Jim was born January 21, 1935, in Choteau, Montana to Clint and Lona Lee Core.  The Core’s along with sons Clint and Jim and daughters Caryl and Judy, moved to Greybull, Wyoming in 1946.  Jim graduated from Greybull High School in 1953 and the University of Wyoming in 1957.  Jim married Virginia “Ginny” Booth on November 29,1958 and the two celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2018.  Jim and Ginny were blessed with four children, Susan, Jim, Steve, and Tom.  Jim, along with his dad and Uncle Jack Core, operated Core Chevrolet and Buick for over 30 years. The dealership was located at the site of the new Greybull Swimming pool, land that was donated to the city by Jim.
     As we all know, Jim was an avid golfer and was a proud member of the Midway Golf Club.  In fact, Jim was able to play some golf this year, at the age of 86, and still could hit it right down the middle.  He even played in the first annual Core golf tournament in December last Christmas in AZ. 
     While still selling cars, Jim became a board member of the Wyoming State Golf Association in 1982.  In 2002, when the WSGA needed his services as executive director, Jim resigned from the board of directors as president and for the next 6 years he served as the executive director in charge of the day-to-day operations. He was inducted into the Wyoming Sports Hall of Fame in 2007 for his dedicated work to better the game of golf in Wyoming.   He was inducted into the Wyoming State Golf Association Hall of Fame in 2009 for his many years of service with the WSGA.
     Following the closure of Core Chevrolet and Buick, Jim worked for Russell and Russell accounting and the Security State Bank.  Jim was a member of the Lions Club, Elks Club, and a former board member of the South Big Horn County Hospital District.  Jim served his country in the Wyoming National Guard as a Sgt. First class from 1959-1974.
     Jim is survived by his four children.  Susan Ford (Troy), Jim Core (Sheri), Steve Core (Nancy), and Tom Core (Jerrie).  Two sisters, Caryl Cline (Roy) and Judy Atchison (Don).  Eight grandchildren, Clint Core (Kendra), Patrick Core (Casey), Christine Lodal (Geoff), Heather Jasnoch (Nick), JT Core (Alysa), Marrissa Whitford (Tyler), Kathryn Ford, and Alex Ford (Brooks).  Thirteen great grandchildren and one on the way in November.  There are also several nephews and nieces.
