Middletown - James Robert Devlin passed away peacefully on Oct. 1 2020, after a brief illness, with his wife of 49 years, Terry (Fisher) Devlin, at his side.
Born in Jersey City, NJ on Sept 4, 1945, Dad was the oldest son to Robert and Santa (Tudisca) Devlin. Dad had a long, varied and successful career that took him from computer programming to defense contracting to financial services and to the federal government. Dad & Mom spent many happy years living in Waterford CT, West Grove PA and Middletown DE.
Dad's pride and joy was his family. Though heartbroken at his passing, his daughters, Bey (Foster) and Mara (Testa), are so grateful for the time they've had with him. Dad also had a special bond with his sons-in-law, Jim Foster and Augie Testa. Without question, Dad's greatest joy was his grandsons: Conlan, Devlin, August and Finn.
With his quick smile and jovial personality, Dad was loved and will be sorely missed by his extended family, including his brother, many "in-laws", nephews, nieces, cousins, friends and colleagues. We'd like to share a special 'thank you' to the medical team at Christiana Care for their caring and support over these past weeks, especially ICU Dr. Travis Kersnick Jones, ICU Nurse Brittany and Season's Hospice Dr. Liu.
