Jim served in the United States Army and was stationed in Tokyo Japan; when he returned, he began his career as a Banker. Then he met the love of his life, Vivian Sossaman, at the “Sweet Shop Bakery” they were later married on Valentine’s Day in 1960.  Jim had many hobbies, such as, church softball, golf, Wake Forest sports, life-long member of the NRA and a Deacon at Eller Memorial Baptist Church. In his later years, he and Vivian attended Grace Fellowship Church in Reidsville where they had a wonderful church family. Jim will be remembered for his sense of humor, love of family, calming spirit and zest for life.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Vivian S. McQueen, brother, Kirby McQueen and sister, Lynda Carroll.

Jim is survived by his two children, Timothy W. McQueen, Angela McQueen (Chris Grogan); sister, Sharon McQueen Kincaid; brother-in-law, Edward Copeland Sossaman Jr. (Betsi) ; beloved grand-puppy, Rusty; in addition to numerous other extended family.
