James Tattershall

December 19, 1938 — December 16, 2021

James Tattershall, 82, was born in Cheraw, CO, on December 19, 1938, the sixth child of Verl and Mable Tattershall. They later moved to Loma, CO, where Jim attended school. At the age of 17, Jim accepted Jesus as his Savior and faithfully served the Lord until his home-going on December 16, 2021. Shortly after accepting Jesus as his Savior he joined the US Army and served in Tachikawa, Japan. He enjoyed his time in Japan because of the Christian friends he made there, many of whom he stayed in contact with over the years. After returning from Japan Jim worked for Rio Grande Motorway and then the Mesa County School District where he retired.

In 1965 Jim married the love of his life, Judy (Roland) who survives him along with their two children, Carrie (Tom) Kassales of Clifton, CO and Howard (Beth) Tattershall of Greer, SC, four grandchildren, Roland, Lydia, Brooke, and Zachary, and four great-grandchildren, Blythe, Grace, Dean, and Ella. He leaves behind many other family members who will greatly miss him. His family remembers him as a quiet man who loved God, loved his family, and loved gardening.
