Mr. James Armstrong Bagby Sr.
July 12, 1931 – May 15, 2020
James "Jim" Armstrong Bagby, Sr. was born to Carroll and Dorothy Bagby on July 7, 1931. He was born in Columbus, Ohio. He received a bachelor's degree at University of Oregon and then joined the Army. After being Honorably Discharged, Jim earned another bachelor's degree at Oregon (despite being a huge Iowa Hawkeye fan!) He then became a tax collector for the IRS. Even though he has a genuinely lovely person, many people begrudged the fact that he was the 'tax man'. He spent 53 years of his life with his beloved, Nancy. Together, they had two children; James A Bagby, Jr., who passed in 2003; and Cindy Bagby who lives in New York with her husband, Tom Knowles and their son, Jimmy. For the past year Jim has been taken care of at an adult foster home but he was able to attend his daughter's wedding and Christmas celebrations. On May 15, 2020, Jim left us to join his parents and his son in Heaven. Nancy and Cindy would welcome your condolences and love.
Services will be held at a later time when we may all gather once more.
