Edward Duncan James, 90, passed from this life to his home with the Lord, peacefully on Nov. 10th at his residence. He was born, raised, and lived in the Philadelphia, PA area until he retired to Florida 20 years ago. Ed was a 1943 graduate of Amherst College, where he played soccer. He was a catcher for the famous House of David semi-pro baseball team before serving as a bombardier in the Army Air Corps in World War II. He had a keen sense of business, and after 30 years retired as Director of Sales for Wilton Tool corporation, with a number of inventions to his credit. Ed loved to go out to eat, and frequented familiar places not only for the food, but he shared an interest in the lives of those he came to know, and enjoyed "catching-up", as well as a round of his playful banter. To those who "played" with him, you made his day. He was preceded in death by his wife, Clare A. Mitchell. He leaves behind his loving Mary; his daughter, Linda James Butler, her husband Tom, and grandson Robert.
