Jim was born in Warren, Ohio on January 15, 1952 to Anthony S. Hronchek and Katherine J. (Fallon) Hronchek of Warren, Ohio. He married Chandra Gambill in 1976 and they spent 37 wonderful and eventful years together. He was the loving father to three sons, Captain Brian J.

He joined with PR Mallory in Indianapolis, then subsequently moved to Kokomo in 1979 where he successively worked with Whitesell & Associates in electronics sales, Delco Electronics as an electronics test engineer, and Electronic Data Systems as an applied software specialist. He spent several years with Kimball Electronics in Jasper, Indiana, then Hewlett Packard in Carmel, Indiana before opening his own engineering consulting firm in 2009. Jim was inventive and creative in electronics and embedded software, with several unique designs and innovations to his name.

A gifted guitarist, singer and song writer, Jim acted as worship leader for area churches and organizations between 1980 and 2005.
