James Larry Askew

November 1, 1943 ~ December 28, 2021 (age 78)


No words can adequately describe James, whom everyone knew as a man of character, strength, honesty and integrity. A well-loved man, he enjoyed meeting new people and a good conversation.

The simplest pleasures in life, such as his pets, fishing, hunting, nature-watching out the patio door, mowing the lawn, gardening, and cooking brought the greatest joy to James. He could often be found tinkering with something. He could seemingly build or repair anything.

Over his life he shared many relationships: Son, Brother, Uncle, Husband, Father, Grandfather Great-Grandfather, Friend, Colleague and US Army Veteran.

He will be deeply missed by family and all who knew him.

Family and friends will gather at Eddy Funeral Home, 621 First Avenue South, Jamestown, North Dakota on Monday, January 10, 2022 from 11am to 2pm.
