He was born July 11th, 1938 to Evelyn (Shaw) and Robert Nevitt. James earned a Bachelor Degree in Mechanical Engineering,and was employed as Engineer for Systems Research Lab.
James was a classic car enthusiast and computer specialist.

He had an enormous heart for his small close-knit family. He will be remembered most for his favorite Starlight Mints, Oreo's, and the endearing love he shared for his family.
He was preceded in death by his parents. James is survived by his wife of 62 years, Sandy (Black) Nevitt: his daughter Kelly (Mark) Pupo and their son Bradley, and great-aunt Virginia Kable.
In honoring the wishes of James, the family requests that their be no formal visitation or service. You are welcome to send a condolence, plant a tree and share a story or picture about James at www.ConnerAndKoch.com by clicking on his name.
