James E. McDonald, 80, of Kensington, Md., formerly of Washington Crossing, Pa., passed away Wednesday, March 30, 2016, at Arden Courts, Kensington.

Born and raised in Waterbury, Conn., Jim attended Crosby High School and then the College of the Holy Cross, Worchester, Mass., where he earned a bachelor of science degree in economics. Upon graduation, he moved to Philadelphia, Pa., to attend the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He was a long-time employee of IBM.
