James Heaster

James “Jim”   Matthew   Heaster   departed   from   his   physical   body   on   September   15,   2017,   at   age   81.     He   was   born in   the   hills   of   West   Virginia   and   died   in   the   hills   of   north   Georgia. He   spent   most   of   his military/medical   career   in   the   South   Carolina   Low   Country.

Husband,   father,   grandfather,   uncle   and   brother,   Jim   was   a   retired   U.S.   Navy   Captain   and Physician   who   provided   care   to   sailors,   marines   and   children. For   10   years   following retirement,   he   enjoyed   being   a   lifeguard   at   Dataw   Island,   SC,   where   he   taught   children   water safety   and   instruction.

Jim   was   cheerful   and   kind,   and   definitely   the   best   comic   of   our   family   with   his   endearing   and impromptu   antics. We   treasure   all   those   memories   of   warmth   and   laughter.

Here   are   a   few   of   those   happy   memories.     Jim   enjoyed   playing   the   ukulele   and   singing   familiar tunes   until   just   the   past   month. He   might   burst   into   song   at   any   time,   like   serenading   a   jam maker   with   “Shoo   Fly   Pie   and   Apple   Pandowdy”,   or   a   new   infant   with   “God’s   Grace   To   You”. He recorded   himself   singing   bass   in   the   Navy   Hymn   to   be   played   at   the   memorial   service-at-sea for   his   wife’s   uncle,   a   retired   Naval   officer   also. Jim   would   become   friends   with   a   child   in   a grocery   cart   just   by   catching   the   child’s   eye   with   his   sweet   smile   and   clever   wit.

Smarter   than   a   fifth   grader,   Jim   was   also   a   man   of   deep   introspection   and  contemplation.

His   wife,   family   and   friends   will   miss   him   dearly,   but   they   will   bid   him   farewell,   knowing   that   he  is returning Home.

Jim’s   cremains   will   be   interred   in   the   Beaufort   National   Cemetery,   Beaufort,   SC. Memorial   contributions   may   be   made   to:

Marble   Valley   Friends,   Inc.,   P.O.   Box   2,   Tate,   GA         30177      (dedicated   to   the   preservation   of historical   buildings   and   structures   in   Tate   and   providing   education   and   history   of   the   area).
