James “Jim” Fetty loving husband, father, age 89, passed away at his home on March 13, 2017.

He was born September 7, 1927 in Middlebourne, WV to the late James E. and Asia Fetty.

He is survived by his wife Kay and two daughters, Leslie Fetty of Alexandria, VA and Kelly Fetty of Winston-Salem, NC. and his beloved cat, Tabby.

He graduated from Middlebourne High School and volunteered in 1946 to serve as a medic in the US Army. After leaving the Army he went to work at DuPont Washington Works in Parkersburg, WV where he rose to become Laboratory Superintendent and later consulted with DuPont where he was instrumental in opening plants in Mexico and South Korea.

Jim loved cats and tomato gardening and was a sports fan and avid golfer. He and Kay followed the career of Dottie Pepper, attending many of her tournaments. He followed WVU football and basketball, but most of all he was a die-hard Cubs fan, and lived to see his beloved Cubs win their first World Series in 108 years.

Jim battled Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia and would appreciate donations in lieu of flowers be made to the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation that supports children and the families who battle cancer.

Friends and Family are invited to attend the Funeral Service on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. at Kimes Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 521 5th St., Parkersburg with Pastor Tom Stephens officiating.

Visitation will be on Friday March 24, 2017 from 5 p.m. to 7p.m. and one hour prior to the service on Saturday.
