James "Jim" Langford age 77 passed on November 9, 2015.
He was born on February 5, 1939 in Norfolk, Virginia. He is preceded in death by his dad, James E. Langford, his mom Ruth Dowlin and her husband C.H. Dowlin. He is survived by Jaynie, his soul mate of 30 years, whom he referred to as "Bebe"!
Jim served in the army during the Vietnam War as an MP. It was during this time he not only protected our country but even delivered a baby in the back of a police car. He was so proud of this accomplishment and would share this story over the years.
Jim graduated from Baxter Seminary in 1959 where he first met Jaynie. It wasn't until 1986 they reconnected and began their journey together. They enjoyed every part of life! As long as they were together, it didn't matter what they did. Watching Nascar, football, traveling, camping, singing and dancing, or just hangin with friends. As long as they were together life was grand!
Jim always valued hard work and a loyal work ethic. He began work at an early age setting up bowling pins at the age of 10, delivering newspapers, worked at a printing company, and then finally spending 29 years at Dupont where he retired at the young age of 55. It was at this time that he and Jaynie continued on their nonstop journey of life.
Jim leaves behind his soul mate, Jaynie, two kids, Johnny (Donna), Jayna (Ray), and four grandkids Jessica, Tyler, Austin, and Jake. He also leaves behind many cherished friendships.
