James B. Rutland
CLEARWATER - Mr. James B. Rutland, 83, of Clearwater, SC, beloved husband of nearly sixty-five years to Mrs. Mary H. Rutland, entered into rest on Thursday, October 5th, 2017.
Born in Bamberg, SC and a resident of the CSRA since 1975, he was a son of the late T.B. Sr. and Ada Taylor Rutland. A Korean War Veteran, he served his country with honor and pride, in the United States Army. Mr. Rutland was an avid sports fan. Through thick and thin, he was an avid Carolina Gamecock fan. He also enjoyed NASCAR. More than anything however, he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, Meghan Gillespie, Samantha Rutland and Jennifer Rutland and let us not forget, the newest addition to the family, his great-grandson, Lucas Anderson. Sadly, a grandson, Little James Derrick Gillespie, preceded him in death.
In addition to his wife, parents, grandchildren and great-grandson, family members include his children and their spouses, Jamie and Randy Gillespie, Clearwater, SC and Richard Bryan and Susan Rutland, North Augusta, SC.
Friends will be greeted by the family on Tuesday, October 10th, 2017, beginning at 2 o'clock at Hatcher Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 3464 Jefferson Davis Hwy., Graniteville, SC, followed by a Celebration of Life Service at 3 o'clock in the chapel. Pastor Dexter Lambert will officiate. In recognition of his honorable service to his country, Veterans Honors will be accorded by a United States Army Honor Guard, in Sunset Memorial Gardens, Graniteville, SC.
Mr. Rutland would have appreciated memorials in his memory being made to the Wounded Warrior Project. (www.woundedwarriorproject.org)
