James Calvin Quinn, III
James Calvin Quinn, III
LONGVIEW — Jim Quinn, a devoted son of Christ who was born on March 4, 1946, went to be with his Lord and Savior on February 10, 2021. He was a devoted father, step-father, grandfather and loving husband. His parents were James Calvin Quinn and Myrtle Artie Henderson from Fulton, GA.
Jim was a graduate of East Texas Baptist University earning an engineering degree. In addition, he had been an active member and bible study teacher at the First Baptist Church of Longview, TX as well as a past scuba diving instructor for many years in Dallas, TX, an avid hunter and fisherman as well as a past two-term president for the East TX Amateur Radio Club (Ham Club) as well as a Realtor. He also held the certified recognition of being a FEMA trained trainer for the Community Emergency Response Team in Longview and a past Auto-Cad Instructor for Kilgore College.
One of Jim’s most fervid/emotional/poignant and personal accomplishments was that he served with the US Army in Vietnam. He always wore his Veteran’s hat with pride and was greeted with handshakes from strangers thanking him for his service, not to mention the times his/our dinners were paid for by those same strangers or rather compassionate folks. Jim persevered through the years with the backlash of health issues from Agent Orange. Even through all that, he managed to keep up his good-natured outlook on life. This was, indeed, one of his special traits, which endeared him to others. Most of all, he was very proud of his Irish heritage.
Jim is survived by three children, Torre who resides in Arlington, TX with wife Cassie and children Caitlan and Declan; Jennifer, residing in Cedar Hill, TX with husband Klayton and son Noah; and Corey with his wife Lonna from La Marque, TX. Also left to cherish his memory is his loving wife, Sue Linger-Quinn in Longview, TX and stepson B.J. Linger of Gilmer, TX.
A visitation for Mr. Quinn will be held 10:30 AM Monday, March 1, 2021 at Jeter & Son Funeral home in Dallas, with a funeral service to follow.
