Published in the Dec.9, 2009, issue

Jim Tarabell, a 45-year Princeton resident before he settled in Pennington, N.J., in 1995, died of lung disease Feb. 1, 2007, at University Medical Center in Princeton. He was 86.

Born in Dover, N.J., Jim entered Princeton from Blair Academy. He joined Key and Seal Club and graduated in June 1943. During World War II he was briefly in the Marines and later the Army Quartermaster Corps, becoming a first lieutenant. He returned to Princeton’s Graduate College and studied clinical psychology there for several years.

Jim worked for Permacel Tape in New Brunswick, N.J., and later for Acme Rubber Manufacturing in Trenton, where he was assistant to the sales manager. He then made a career change, leaving business to teach math and science for 20 years, first at Crossroads School, South Brunswick, and then at South Brunswick High School.

Survivors include his wife of 64 years, the former Edwina Anderson (a nurse at McCosh Infirmary from 1946 to 1960); a daughter and son-in-law, Joanne and Dr. Loren Southern; two grandchildren; two step-grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
