James Richard O達rien, born June 13, 1939, left this world gently with the support of his family on June 7, 2018.
Raised in Lansing in a family of five brothers, Jim was an outstanding athlete, a card shark, an avid golfer, and fan of horse racing, Tiger baseball, and Spartan basketball.
In the US Air Force in the early 60s, Jim was a Russian language specialist and early adopter of computer technology. He joined Honeywell, Inc. in 1965 to teach computer programming to recent graduates, and then transitioned to sales and sales management. In 1976, he joined JSJ Corporation as head of sales at Carlon Meter Company, and ultimately joined a partnership to purchase the company, serving as partner and vice president until retirement.
He served on the boards of the Spring Lake District Library and the Friends of Ottawa County Parks. He was active in the Owashtanong Islands Audubon Society, Junior Achievement, and St. Mary痴 Catholic Church where he ushered, helped in the food pantry, and provided transportation for the elderly and disabled. He was a long-time member of the American Legion, Muskegon Irish American Society, and Spring Lake Country Club.
Jim truly enjoyed people. He made friends easily and enjoyed lifelong friendships at his homes in Spring Lake, West Olive, and Sanibel Island, FL. We値l miss his intelligence, his wit, his love of family, and his kindness. He was, as he liked to say of others, "a good one."
He leaves behind a large and loving family, including devoted wife Jeanne McKenna O達rien, who loved him well and tenderly throughout more than 60 years together.
He is survived by children Kathleen (Mark Jones), Julie, Christopher (Anne Bryson), and Amy (Jeremy Lynch). Son-in-law Mark Helsen. Grandchildren Hadley O達rien (Adam Mulling) and Lydia Fritz (Pat); Riley and Isaac Helsen; and Caroline, John, and Cavan O達rien. Great grandchildren Isla and Ronan O達rien-Mulling. Brothers Patrick (Judie), Thomas (Chris), and Michael. And in-laws Ray and Patsy Lincolnhol, Henry and Karen Jallos, Brian and Donna McKenna, David and Kristine Poulson, and Kevin and Brenda McKenna, Ann O達rien, and a large clan of nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews, who loved their uncle Jim.
Jim was predeceased by his parents Jack and Frances O達rien and his brother Robert.
