- James Frederick Small (Jim), passed away on January 18th at the age of 84. He was surrounded by an abundance of family, love and laughter.
Jim, the middle child of three children, was born on April 27, 1932 in Biddeford, Maine to the late Elmer and Frances Small.
Jim had numerous interests and loves. The greatest of all of them was his wife of 57 years Barbara (Bowman). They married on October 18, 1959 and had six children. They raised their six children in Medway, Massachusetts and in 1988 Jim retired from Anchor Motor Freight and they moved to Sangerville, Maine. Jim appreciated the great outdoors like no other. He enjoyed hunting, boating and sailing, fishing, woodworking and the ample wildlife outside his windows. He was also known to be an enthusiastic sports fan. Jim was a Veteran Corporal of the Korean War. He served from 1952 to 1954.
