James Locker Obituary
James Carl Locker
Beloved husband and father, Jim lost his 13 month courageous battle with cancer on February 14, 2013 at Bruns House Hospice in Alamo, California. Jim was born Sept. 5, 1940 to George Albert and Erma (Bowthorpe) Locker of Park City, Utah. He graduated from the University of Utah in 1962 with a B.S. degree and later attained his CPCU. He was affiliated with Sigma Nu Fraternity and served in the Army reserves.
Jim had a wonderful life with a myriad of talents and interests. He worked in San Francisco as a corporate insurance broker for 37 years in various sales and executive positions, including as President of Frank B. Hall & Co. before retiring as Managing Director of Sedgwick Global in 2000 to become the President of F. L. Group, Limited. He was at home in the corporate boardroom but preferred the fly fishing stream. His wide variety of abilities served him well as a caddy, ski instructor, forest ranger, Eagle Scout and Boy Scout leader, carpenter, youth sports coach, fly fisherman, golfer, and in his retirement years, a chef and bocce player. He had an eclectic taste in music and loved listening to country western, jazz and classical music.
He married Judy (Holt) in 1972. Jim was very proud of his son, Bradley and his daughter-in-law, Allison. He is also survived by his sister, Genele (Mrs. Philip) Fehr, nieces Michelle Fehr and Beckie (Mrs. Jason) Andersen and family, his loving dog Buster and a host of caring friends.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Matthew Sirott, the infusion nurses and all the staff at Diablo Valley Oncology, the doctors and nurses at John Muir Hospital and Bruns House Hospice for all their care and support. Memorial donations may be made to John Muir Health Foundation for cancer services online or at 1400 Treat Blvd., Walnut Creek 94597 or . At Jim's request, no services will be held.
