James Arthur of Longmont Co. passed away at the Longmont United Hospital on Wednesday Aug 21, 2013 at age 76, due to a long battle with Cancer. James was born in Fort Collins Colorado on December 18, 1936 where he grew up attended school and then enlisted in the Navy. After the Navy James moved to Longmont working as an Engineer for more then 30 years at IBM and StorageTek, then in retirement found a second home at the Longmont Athletic Club greeting the members four evenings a week. He always looked forward to going to the club to visit with his friends and touched everyone he knew with his kind heart and sarcastic, playful personality. Jim is preceded in death by an infant son, his parents Nell and James Cary of Fort Collins and his sister Shirley Andersen of Limon. Jim is survived by his wife Kathy Cary, two daughters Christene Cary and Dana Hermanson, three sons Brett Cary, David Miller and Richard Heyer, his brother Lowell and wife Susie Cary and his sister Vickie Lee and husband Bobby Thiele, brother in law Lee Andersen, along with numerous grand children, great grand children, nieces and nephews. Jim loved to fish, play softball on the senior leagues, spend time with his family, watch the Broncos and the Rockies with a cold beer in his hand.
