James Temple “JT” Baughan Born August 1, 1929, died February 6, 2020
Mr. Baughan passed away early Thursday morning at the age of 90 years, after a brief illness. He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Ann Kvasnicka Baughan, and his five children and their spouses, Catherine (Michael) Springmann, James T. (Eileen) Baughan, Jr., William J. (Jackie) Baughan, Mary B. Baughan, and David A. (Joan) Baughan. He also leaves seven grandchildren, Marcus Springmann, Timothy Springmann, Victoria Baughan, Melanie Baughan, Kevin Dolan, Christopher Dolan, and David James Baughan, and two great-grandchildren, Logan Springmann and Connor Mattes.
Mr. Baughan was part of a large, loving family, and one of his greatest joys in life was to celebrate together. Their home was the site of many memorable parties and barbecues. JT was full of stories of his life that he loved to share, especially about his time in the Navy and as a Trailways bus driver. He was always interested in what his grandchildren were doing, and enjoyed talking with them and sharing a laugh. He loved music, and especially enjoyed dancing with his wife Ann. JT and Ann traveled extensively together throughout the USA, as well as to parts of Canada and Europe. He never tired of sharing memories of their wonderful travel adventures. He was a man of faith, and was looking forward to going “home” to be with the Lord.
Mr. Baughan was residing in the Memory Unit at The Springs, in Hot Springs, Virginia, at the time of his death. A memorial service will be planned at a later date.
