James W. McCollough, age 76, passed away February 29, 2020 at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born January 19, 1944 in Lockport, NY to the late Gilbert and Dorothy McCollough. Jim loved the lord. Jim’s faith and humor stood strong through his six year Cancer journey. Jim and Lynda were married on December 16, 1961. They had a strong and loving marriage for 58 years. He retired from Osram Sylvania in 2003. Through his retirement he delivered Meals on Wheels, worked for Napa part-time and also worked in the Blueberry Hill Pro shop. The holiday meal program at the Trinity Memorial was started by Jim and his wife Lynda along with Gail and Barb Winslow. From early morning to late afternoon they shopped, cooked and delivered meals to many for Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter. For many years it was a rewarding outreach which grew to need many more volunteers and was later moved to the First Lutheran Church. Jim loved golfing and working in the pro shop with his son Gary and grandson Jacob. He enjoyed the hugs he received from the ladies golf league. In his early years, he appreciated mountain biking, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and canoeing. He and Lynda enjoyed road trips together to the south and southwest in their Tundra. He loved his two daily walks to his favorite wooded area.
