JAMES "JIM" ROBERT WYNN, 81, entered into his Heavenly home on October 24, 2019. His Christian faith gave him hope, strength, and complete peace during his 2-1/2 year cancer battle & he was an inspiration to all. Jim hoped his part in a Clinical Study at Tampa Moffitt Cancer Center helped in learning more about this monster disease. He was born in Portsmouth, VA to Ike & Nell Wynn on Valentine's Day 1938. At age 3, he lost his father and then his mother at age 14. He grew up in Jacksonville & is a 1956 Andrew Jackson graduate. He was a proud Army veteran.
