Jim was a great friend in high school as well as a colleague and part of the Burger King work group from Millbrook! Even as a teenager he displayed leadership, compassion, faith and unusual kindness. It appears those traits were ingrained. My condolences and best wishes to his family. Trudy Villa Gosler

My condolences to Barbara and all who loved Jim. Jim was a great guy who was kind and would share and give to anyone. We were high school buddies at Millbrook High, he '73, me '74, and neighbors right across the street. His family, as did mine, had moved down from NJ so we had a lot in common to begin. We had our little group at school and we also worked at Burger King together. Jim was also a heavyweight wrestler for MHS and a fierce competitor. So many memories, trips and get togethers. I think Jim had the largest record (yes, vinyl) collection of anyone we new and always first with the latest hits. After many years of losing track, we connected online just several weeks ago and had planned to connect in Raleigh my next visit which happened to be this past weekend. Only then did I find that I lost a great friend and the world lost a wonderful person. I can see that he was at peace in life and touched the lives of many others as well. i pray for Jim and Barbara, all their friends and family.

Jim was our brother-in-Christ at St Catherine in Wake Forest. He went to Cursillo and came back on fire with the Holy Spirit. Since then he has been grouping with guys for 20 years. You could feel his strong faith went he smiled and offered a helping hand to everyone. The guys built a ramp for one of the guys, who had a ruptured cranial aneurism. Just a month ago he kept Brodie, our family dog, while we were out of town. . He and Barbara are very special to us. We have had some great times, laughing and making good memories. We thank God for bring them in our lives. May Jim rest in peace and may God comfort Barbara and all of us who mourn our lost. Arnold and Lita Barr

“Like a shepherd He feeds His flock, and carries the lambs in His arms,
holding them carefully close to His heart………leading them home.”

You have my prayers that the Lord will take Jim into His arms and grant him eternal rest:

Sincerely,
Diana Scullin, co-worker at SCM Metal Products

My condolences to the family of Jim McHugh. I can remember his visit to our Hammond, IN plant when he was chosen to be the Blending Supervisor at the Durham plant. My wife Dee cooked a very nice dinner for him on the day he arrived and then we had a tour of the Hammond plant and I showed him how blends are made in the Hammond plant. He thought it was overwhelming at how this was done to get the customer products according to their specifications. Needless to say, he went back to Durham and learned the process very well.

Jim, you will be missed but not forgotten.

Rest In Peace in the Eternal Presence of God.
