Leon James Dwulet, Jr.

October 8, 1949 to October 25, 2016

Jim Dwulet tragically passed away Tuesday, October 25th, in an aviation accident. Jim grew up in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, and attended Peddie School. He played golf at Stanford University and won numerous amateur golf titles through his college years. Jim lived in the Orinda area for over 40 years, investing in and developing real estate. For 43 years, he made regular appearances at Stanford sporting events and tailgate parties. Despite his new west coast roots, Jim was a passionate Yankee fan throughout his life. He loved his sports and his wide circle of friends. Jim continued to play golf at a very competitive level and kept all his golf buddies laughing while he challenged them to play their best. Jim's passion for fly-fishing, in both salt-water flats and fresh water rivers, took him and his friends to remote places as often as possible. In 2015, Jim became a very proud and very adoring grandfather.

Jim is survived by his beloved daughter, Lauren, his precious seventeen-month-old grandson, James, son-in-law Greg Cosso, who became one of his best pals, and Lauren's step-brothers, Will and Nick. In addition, Jim is predeceased by his brother, Fred and survived by his sisters, Donna, Joan, and Caroline, brother, John, and numerous friends, who considered him family. Jim will be immeasurably missed.

A Celebration of Jim's life will be held on Friday, November 4th, at 1:30 pm at Orinda Country Club. Donations in his honor can be made to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (https://www.bcrfcure.org).
