Hugh McGinnis "Jim" III Obituary
Hugh "Jim" McGinnis, III

AGE: 72 • Dagsboro

Hugh "Jim" McGinnis, III of Dagsboro passed away on December 3, 2016 at Beebe Medical Center in Lewes, DE. He was 72 years old. Jim was born on Jan. 5, 1944 in Wilmington, DE to the late Hugh James, Sr. and Catherine Sullivan McGinnis. He grew up to serve in the US Army, and was a Viet Nam Veteran. He earned both a B.A. degree, and Master's in English from the University of Delaware. He married Cynthia Marie Riner, and was a dedicated husband and father to their two children. He loved baseball, fishing, opera, and history - he was an an amateur scholar of sorts. Jim will be remembered as always being able to express himself in a friendly, charming, soft-spoken manner. He was devoted to his family, and will be greatly missed. He is survived by his two children: Matthew McGinnis, of Dagsboro; and Maggie McGinnis, of Ocean View. He is also survived by two sisters: Maggie and Cathy; and two brothers: Patrick and Kevin. Also surviving are his sisters-in-law Debby and Robyn, and brother-in-law Jack, as well as his many nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Jim was preceded by his wife of 25 years, Cynthia, his brother, Michael, and his parent-in-law, Gordon and Marian Riner.
