Former Alaska resident James Churchill "Jamie" Coverdale, 43, died suddenly Sept. 9, 2007, at home in Fountain Hills, Ariz.
Jamie was born Oct. 12, 1963, in Soldotna. He graduated from West High School in 1981 and earned bachelor's degrees in fine arts and architecture from Arizona State University in Tempe.
Jamie was a very talented designer, his family wrote, and owned an architecture business in Fountain Hills. He designed commercial and government buildings throughout the Phoenix area, including numerous shopping centers and the Fountain Hills Chamber of Commerce building. He lived in Arizona for 25 years.
His family wrote: "Jamie was a devoted father, son and brother. Jamie was the proud and adoring father of Nicholas Vertiz Coverdale of Fountain Hills."
He leaves behind his son, Nicholas; parents, Miles L. and Katherine S. Coverdale of Anchorage; brother and sister-in-law, Miles N. and Helen-Ann Coverdale of Anchorage; sisters and brothers-in-law, Rebecca and Paul Repoza of East Falmouth, Mass., and Jennifer and Steve Miller of Thornton, Colo.; eight nieces and nephews; and many dear uncles, aunts, cousins and friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent in memory of Jamie to the Christian Children's Fund.
