James Cardin, Jr.
September 9, 1935 - October 31, 2011
James Cardin Jr., 76, was born on September 9, 1935 in Cleveland, Tn. He went home to be with his Lord and Savior in the early hours on October 31, 2011. He was a member of Southview Baptist Church where he received Christ into his heart. James "Pop" was a beloved Father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and last but never least a great friend. All his life he worked around 18 wheelers and wood; this legacy he passed onto his sons. He had the look in his eyes of a man, who has had hardships, but he rose to the challenge and he won.
He is preceded in death by his Father and Mother, James "Jim" and Rebecca Cardin, and his brothers Billy Cardin, Edwin Cardin, Lester Cardin and sister, Mary Cardin.
Survivors include his three sisters Elizabeth Stevenson, Marie Ledford, and Patricia Miksa all of Cleveland; his ex-wife Mary Ruth Branam; his five sons, Jimmy and Debbie Carden of Cleveland, Jerry and Denise Cardin of Benton, Jackie and Melissa Carden of Cleveland, Jeffery and Jackie Carden of Cleveland, and James and Rhonda Carden of Georgetown, his three step-children, Franklin and Ginger Carden, William Branam, and Karen Carden all of Cleveland; 16 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Several nieces and nephews also survive.
Pop was a kind, loving man who dearly loved to tease and laugh. Although he is gone from this earth, he will be held in our hearts forever.
Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at Southview Baptist Church. Internment will follow in Michigan Avenue Cemetery. A white dove release ceremony will conclude the service.
