Obituary for James Howe Sawyer

James Howe Sawyer, 93, of Charlotte, NC went to meet the Lord, April 6, 2018 at Charlotte Square. He was born on Sept 27, 1924 in Haverhill, MA, to the late Robert and Dorothea Baker. He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Elizabeth Sawyer, his brother, Robert Sawyer, his sister, Barbara Natalino, his children Bryan Sawyer [predeceased], Diana Brinson, Stephen Sawyer, Allyson Hummel, his step-children, Donna Harrill and Dianne Chambers. He is also survived by fifteen grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
Jim was a graduate of New Hampshire University with a degree in Chemical Engineering. He was an eternal optimist, a gourmet cook, and always greeted everyone with a smile. During his years as a World War II pilot he became a Second Lieutenant and even was named “Gunner of the Week” for his high mission score. He was perpetually dedicated to his faith in Jesus Christ and he lived his life loving the Lord as a faithful member of Sharon United Methodist Church (newly Southpark Church).
The family would like to express their appreciation to Hospice of Community Home Care, Southpark Church, their Forum Sunday school class and to their very special friend, Lib Gibbs for their loving support.
A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 4pm at St Stephen United Methodist Church, 6800 Sardis Rd., Charlotte, NC 28207. The family will receive friends from 3-4pm.
Arrangements are in the care of JB Tallent Funeral Services. In lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations be made to Southpark UMC at P.O. Box 470943, Charlotte, NC 28247 or Southparkchurch.com.
