Wilde, MD and his wife, Cindy; and his daughter, Alison and her husband, Ron Jump. Jim is also survived by his granddaughter, Michelle Senne, and his grandsons, Maxwell and Gavin Wilde. Jim held a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering from London University and enjoyed a very successful career in Communication Satellite Engineering. Private Service will be held. In lieu of Flowers please make donations in his memory to the South Coast Botanical Gardens on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, one of Jim's favorite places to visit. Jim loved to travel with his wife and children, had a passion for all things mechanical including planes, steam locomotives and automobiles. He also helped many stranded motorists in Palos Verdes over the years by changing flat tires. Jim loved Gran Prix auto racing and tennis, but couldn't be coerced to sit through a quarter of NFL football. He will be dearly missed. Please sign the guest book at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
