Lynn Gordon JamesSept. 12, 1930 ~ Jan. 23, 2012The tapestry of life was woven throughout Lynn James' life beginning with his first breath of life on September 12, 1930 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Gladys Maybelle Wickland and George Godfrey Asher James. Included in the weaving process was becoming an eagle scout as a youth, seven years served in the U. S. Army from 1947-1954. In the last year of service he was married to Geraldine (Jeri) Haag of Kensington, MD and then pursued a college education in California graduating in 1956. In 1979, he completed a Masters degree at West Georgia University. His total working career was with the DuPont Company which sent him to Puerto Rico in 1960 for twelve years where they raised their family. He was a co-founder of the Loyola Athletic Club of Puerto Rico which is still in existence today having sent many swimmers to college on scholarships. The gospel of Jesus Christ became his warp upon which was woven his passion of family history which revealed his Jewish heritage. He and his wife served in the Family History Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 2003-2005 for the happiest of all their 58 years together! Having been enriched by this incredible tapestry of life are his wife, Jeri James; children Julie (deceased), Janine (Cary) Bate of UT, Jeffrey (Kelly) James of CA and grandchildren Kit (Natalie) Bate, McKenzie (Matthew) Huff, Kelly Bate and Cassady Bate all of Utah. He adored his four great grandchildren Broox and Krew Bate and McKyla and Colton Huff. A special thanks to all the loving caregivers at SUNRISE of Sandy and to Haven Hospice.
