James L. (Jim) Gresham, 83, of Collierville, TN, died September 11, 2021, at his home after an extended illness. He was born in Greenville, SC.

He was preceded in death by his parents Maggie L. Gresham and James L. Gresham and his sister Brenda Lesley and brother Robert L. Gresham. Jim is survived by his wife, Beverly Gresham of 63 years and 4 sons, Jack Gresham (Flotyl), Greg Gresham (Vicky), Mike Gresham, and Tim Gresham (Angela) . Eight grandchildren, Lizzy Huey (Chad), Bradley Gresham, Kelley Hunter (Jordan), Whitney Gresham, Jimmy Gresham (Alaina), Jack Gresham, Maggie Gresham and Emma Gresham, and three great-grandbabies, Derek Hunter, James Hunter and Oakley Huey.

Jim attended North Greenville Junior College until he and Beverly decided to elope in February 1958. Greenville was home for 10 years until the proverbial "climb up the corporate ladder" which led them to Kingsport, TN, Atlanta, GA, Morristown, TN, Nashville, TN, Barrington, IL then settling in Germantown, TN. He retired from Chemtreat, Inc in 2009 after being in Industrial Water-treatment Sales for 42 years. Jim was an active member of Germantown Baptist Church for 36 years. He was an avid golfer and Papa to his grand!

A Remembrance Service will be held 3:00pm Friday, September 17, 2021, at Germantown Baptist Church.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to Germantown Baptist, First Baptist of Macon, TN or to a charity of the donors choice.
