Obituary for William N. James, Jr.

William N. James, Jr., 71, of Ft. Washington, PA. In the wee hours of the morning of March 26, 2018, “Bill” escaped the limitations of this life, and it brings us joy to think he was greeted on the other side by his old bulldog Benson. He was the kind and loving husband of Kathryn B. James. Bill was born in Lansdale, PA on May 24, 1946 to the late William N. and Zenta (Kuzma) James. He was an Eagle Scout and a US Army Veteran. Bill earned his Bachelor of Science Degree from Juniata College. He was a Research Biologist with Rohm & Haas, Dow Chemical for many years. As an active member of Upper Dublin Lutheran Church, he was affectionately known as the King of the annual flea market for over 20 years. Bill was also an avid saltwater fisherman and an over enthusiastic gardener- with a special passion for rhododendrons and azealeas. Along with his wife Kathy, he is survived by his children Jeremy James (Fiona James) and Samuel Fearnside, grand children Kiefer and Sawyer James, sister Dana McEachern, sister-in-law Barbi Harris (Don Oral), and many friends at Upper Dublin Lutheran Church. The UDLC Community, friends and neighbors of the James family and members of Kathy's quilt guild were tremendously supportive during Bill’s illness, and for this Bill was grateful. Through this trying time, his fishing buddy Max Stepanuk, and friend Esther James have been a source of strength and support to the entire family. Bill left knowing how blessed he was, that his Helebores, crocuses and prize azealas were blooming and that his Eagles were the Super Bowl Champions. Relatives and friends are invited to share in a Memorial Service on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at 10:30AM at Upper Dublin Lutheran Church, 411 Susquehanna Rd., Ambler, PA 19002. A Visitation will be held from 9:30-10:30AM. Interment will be Private. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in William’s name can be made to ASP Appalachia Service Project https://www.asphome.org/tributes/.
