James Wm. Stovall
December 14, 1924 - September 3, 2017

Salem - Enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1943, and at 18 may have been the youngest rifle range coach ever assigned; also a member of the United State Army assigned to the Counter Intelligence School at Oberammergau Germany.

Married an Oregon girl, Clarice M. Harms, a War Department employee at the school in January 1948 - Two Children, Sherrie Y. Jern and James, Jr. and two grandchildren, Jessica A. Jern and Matthew K. Stovall. Clarice died in January of 1990, which was a great loss to us all...

Salem Oregon Police Officer for 36-1/2 years, having spent most of those years in Criminal Investigations as a detective and lieutenant commanding.

I retired December 31, 1985 and moved to the Vail/Beaver Creek Colorado ski country and lived on an exclusive golf course, "Arrowhead at Vail" for more than two years, skiing 80 days per year and fly fishing Eagle River which parallels the golf course, and also fished the Jackson Hole Wyoming area, as well as Yellowstone National Park.

What a life! Incredible!

A celebration of Jim's life will be from 9-10:30 AM on Saturday, September 9 for friends and fellow officers at The Original Pancake House, 4656 Commercial Street SE.

A graveside service will follow at 11:30 AM at Belcrest Memorial Park.

Assisting the family is Virgil T. Golden Funeral Service.
