James Shea Obituary
James C. Shea Jr.

Battle Creek

James C. Shea Jr., 62, passed away Thursday, November 10th, 2016, following complications from a recent illness.

James (Jimmy) attended Battle Creek Central High School and went on to earn a bachelor's degree, graduating from Olivet College with honors.

Jimmy always had a knack for mechanical understanding as well as a unique appreciation for how things are made. This led him to a career in telecommunications with AT&T specializing in electric and fiber optic maintenance and repair.

After his retirement, he focused on what he loved most: sports. Jimmy had a particular fondness for baseball, especially the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs. He was thrilled to see his beloved Cubs make history this year by winning the World Series.

He leaves behind his partner of many years, Denise Murphy (Olivet, MI); as well as his sister, Judith Shea (Lansing, MI); his brother, Jack Shea (Grand Rapids, MI); his sister, Malinda Shea (Newport, RI); and his niece, Kathryn Chamberlin (Brooklyn, NY).

Jimmy was wonderfully charming and left behind many friends. His family will carry his spirit in their hearts forever. A private memorial service was held with family on Sunday November 13th.
