James passed away at home after a courageous battle with cancer. A native of London, England, he resided in San Jose since 1977. Survived by loving wife Valerie, daughter Helen (Pierre) of San Jose, brother Alan (Mavis) and family of England, and many relatives around the world. James was a graduate of University of Reading. James was an early member of the semiconductor industry in England and later worked for Signetics, Phillips, and Cirrus Logic. James was a pianist, philatelist, genealogist, and golfer. He will be sorely missed by those who loved and knew him.
There will be a celebration of life in April. Please call Darling & Fischer for more information.
