BELL--James Halsey, June 14, 2011. Beloved husband of Patrice; devoted father of Phebe, Halsey, Elizabeth and Anastasia; cherished grandfather of Eliza, Zoey, Addy, Maia, Griffen, Cole, Chloe, Cortland, Annick and Petra. Alumnus of Phillip's Academy Andover, Christ's Hospital, Yale College, and Harvard Law School. Lifelong corporate lawyer, most recently for Satterlee Stephens Burke & Burke. Lover of opera, traveling, photography, grandparenting, pecan pie, and all things Russian. Jim, you were a fantastic husband and a true gentleman. Your kindness, generosity of spirit and loyalty to the things that matter in life - one's family and personal relationships - underpinned your character and integrity. We miss and love you and will think of you every day of our lives. May you rest in peace. Happy Father's Day to an amazing man. Private funeral; a Memorial Service to be announced for September.
