The Class received word this July that James Davis died last December 9.

James was a resident of Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, and a graduate of The Hill School, in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, when he entered Princeton with our Class in the fall of 1962. He joined Dial Lodge.

James didn’t graduate with our Class. He withdrew from Princeton and graduated from the University of Michigan in 1967.

James was married to Beau Jones Davis for 26 years. At various times they resided in Chicago, Apple Valley Lake in Ohio, and Tucson. They were residents of Grosse Pointe when he died.

Water activities were his passion. He was an avid boatman and loved fishing, both fly and spin.
In addition to his wife Beau, James is survived by daughters Kathryn and Barbara, and sister Marilyn. The Class extends its condolences to them.
