IT IS WITH GREAT sadness that we record the death of James R. Williams, on Aug. 20, 1992. For over 20 years, Jim was employed by Factory Mutual Insurance, beginning in Boston as an appraiser of chemical plants and eventually relocating to Long Beach, Calif., where he served as manager for the western division. These professional responsibilities involved travel throughout North America, Europe, Australia, and the Pacific. He was both a member and an instructor for the Appraisal Society of America.
He also traveled extensively on his personal time. An avid and accomplished gardener, Jim enjoyed woodworking and constructed several pieces of furniture for his home.
Friends and colleagues remember him as a generous individual whose kindness and patience were shared with many. He is survived by his parents, Lois and Jack Williams, and his sisters Charlotte and Pat. With them, the Class of 1969 mourns the untimely passing of a highly regarded classmate.
