Mr. James Patrick Tar
AUGUSTA, GA - Memorial Services for Mr. James Patrick Tar, 62, who entered into rest March 11, 2014 will be conducted Saturday morning at 10 o'clock from the Posey Funeral Chapel. Father Jacek Szuster officiating. Interment will be private.
Jim was a native of New Jersey, a former resident of Kentucky, having made Augusta his home for the past 21 years. He was a self-taught artist and the co-owner of Art On Broad. Prior to starting Art On Broad he worked as the Preparator for the Morris Museum of Art. Jim was a talented oil painter and woodworker whose most cherished accomplishment was designing and building the home he and Kristin would share. He enjoyed family beach trips to Edisto, Green Jackets Baseball and rescuing dogs, each of whom became an integral part of his family. Jim had a quick, dry wit and greatly enjoyed exchanging playful banter with his friends and brothers. He was preceded in death by his father, John Tarr and brother, Joseph Tarr.
Survivors include his wife and companion of 26 years, Kristin Varn Tar; his mother Jo Tarr, Winchester, KY; two brothers, Jack Tarr, Lexington, KY and Jeff Tarr, Bradenton, FL; several nieces and a nephew.
The family will receive friends at the funeral home Friday evening from 5 until 7.
Memorials may be made to the CSRA Humane Society, 425 Wood Street, Augusta, GA 30904.
