Obituary for James Harley Easley Jr.

James Harley Easley, Jr.

James Harley Easley, Jr., 91, of Arvada, Colorado, passed away peacefully on February 8, 2021. Born on May 28, 1929, in Esther, Missouri, to James Harley and Edith Easley, Jim (as he was known to his friends and family) grew up on a farm and was blessed with robust health nearly to the time of his passing.

He married Mary Jane Ortiz, of Trinidad, Colorado, on April 14, 1951, and they were blessed with three children, Karen, Sharon, and James. Jim spent a long and successful career working for IBM as a procurement engineer and retired in April, 1990. After retirement, Jim and Mary Jane loved to travel in their motorhome across the country and made many long lasting friendships. He loved to bike and also enjoyed international travel. Jim was devoted to his family and loved boating in Maine, hanging out in Vegas and all family get togethers.
He is predeceased by his parents, his wife, his brother, Jack Easley, and his granddaughter, Allison Kraus. He is survived by Karen Colburn (Archie), Sharon Goldhirsch (Douglas), James B. Easley (Jackie), grandchildren, Kristen Gregory (Luke), Rafael Goldhirsch, Great Grandchildren, Madeline and Isabella Gregory and nieces, Janis E. Thomas, Joyce Shieldnight and Jacki Easley Snider.

It was said of him: “he was a gentile man and a gentleman”. His family and friends will miss him deeply and will carry his optimism, love, and devotion to family with them.

While his family would have preferred a celebration now, for safety reasons, we will sadly miss the opportunity with his friends and loved ones until later this year. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity.

No services will be held at this time, thank you for understanding.

Jim was a friend and will be missed. He would come into the Dollar Tree and he and I would chat about having all of his children in class at Drake and all about them. He was proud of everyone of them. Margaret and I, Terry would like to extend our condolences to the entire family. Terry and Margaret Kindig
