James Francis Carlin, Jr.

Born July 26 1971. Our cherished friend Jim Carlin, 46, passed peacefully from this life October 20, 2017, in his Shoreline home with husband Ben by his side. Artist, master chocolatier, baker, landscaper, culinary professor and chef, Jim loved to design beautiful things that tasted amazing, and he loved to make things grow. He was an incredibly loving, generous and thoughtful friend with the nurturing soul, the inspired imagination of a true artiste, and the heart of a lion.

His beloved mother Mary A. Carlin precedes Jim in death. He leaves behind his husband Benjamin Munoz; father James F. Carlin, Sr. (Mary Greene-Carlin); brothers Christopher and Shawn (Anh and Alyssa); nieces Gabby, Alivia and Kayla nephew Dylan; aunts, uncles, cousins, step-siblings; his cat Harvey; and countless friends, including his "Seattle family" who reveled in his friendship.

We love you, Jim

Jim was the ONE in my life.
That one who was so kind-hearted, the one you can trust and that one who'd give anything for a friend.
The one who stood up for what he knew was right, that one rock sure of himself.
The one who found beauty in so many things.
That one i would get out of bed for and the one i wanted by my side as i fell asleep.
You will forever give me a constant stream of happy memories.
Thanks for giving me your heart my love.
I love you Jimmy.
