James "Jim from Sequim" Flanders, our loving husband, father and grandfather, was born in Sequim on July 15, 1937.
He died peacefully surrounded by his family on October 6, 2013.
Born and raised in Sequim, Jim was an entrepreneur from a very early age, raising rabbits, calves, pigs and baby chicks, and selling eggs.
He graduated from Sequim High School in 1955, saying, "I remember 12 days I liked school: the last day of every year!"
Jim spent years milking cows, logging, a small stint at Boeing and driving trucks, all leading up to opening Jim's Appliance in 1970.
His best year was 1975, the year he married the love of his life, Judy. She saved us all from Dad's cooking!
Jim and Judy enjoyed many years of boating, traveling the world and enjoying each other's company.
He is survived by his loving wife, Judy; children Ron (Sharra) Flanders, Brian (Dot) Flanders and Valerie (Lynn) Johnson; and grandchildren Holly Flanders, Heather (Flanders) Raftery and Jaden, Drew and Todd Johnson.
At Jim's request, there will be no service.
