James Thomas Feather

Feather, James

Oct. 24, 1935 – July 19, 2014

James ‘Jim’ Thomas Feather was born on Oct. 24, 1935, to Allen and Leona Feather near Waverly, Neb. Growing up, he was active in Future Farmers of America. He attended the University of Nebraska Agriculture College in 1953 and was active in the Farmhouse Fraternity, the Innocents Society and played trombone in the band that played in the Orange Bowl in Florida twice during his time in college. He graduated in 1957 with a bachelor’s degree in agriculture and a journalism certificate.

In 1958 Jim married Marilyn Todd, and over the next 15 years their family grew to include five children: Kerry, (Phil Curran); Becky, (David Bishop); Tim; Dan (Christina Feather); and Amy (Mike Dyck). To date, they also have nine much-loved grandchildren.

Over the next 46 years, Jim worked for Pioneer Corn Co. in Indiana; the UC Davis agriculture department; and owned/managed three separate printing businesses in Sacramento and Davis until health problems necessitated selling the business in 2006.

Jim and his family have been attendees and members of the University Covenant Church in Davis for 40-plus years. They have participated in many different ministries there, always including singing in the choir. The church is like a second home, full of loving, supportive friends and a wonderful staff. Jim went to be with the Lord on July 19, 2014, surrounded by his loving family.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held Friday, July 25, 2014, at 11 a.m. at the University Covenant Church, 315 Mace Blvd., Davis, CA.
