Jim peacefully passed away July 20, 2018 at the age of 86 in Santa Maria, CA. He was born January 28, 1932 in Uniontown, PA to parents John and Goulda. He had three older brothers; Donald, John Jr., and Harold. He met Jacquelyn Warren on Easter Day, 1951 in her hometown of Austin, TX and they married on September 26, 1953.
After serving in the US Air Force for twelve years, Jim moved his growing family to Santa Maria in 1962, to work at Vandenberg Air Force Base in Aerospace for twenty-eight years. While working full-time, he earned an Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration at Allan Hancock College. He retired from management with Martin-Marietta in 1990, and he then accepted employment as Program Manager for Curry Contracting Company until his final retirement in 1992.
Jim was a past president of the Orcutt Lions Club, a past member of the American Legion Post #534 and a past member of the Hesperian Masonic Lodge No. 264.
Jim is survived by his wife of 64 years, Jacquelyn, one son, Jim D. (K.J.) and three daughters, Lesly Shuffield (Alan), Lisa Mathews (Robert) and Laura Huebner (Darren).
