He moved to Saudi Arabia in 1983 to study environmental carcinogenesis at King Faisal Hospital in Riyadh.

Returning to the U.S. in 1985, Mr. Fish worked for Quadrex in Oak Ridge on environmental projects, and retired from a position with TVA in Knoxville in 1991.

In addition to his scientific pursuits, Mr. Fish was a talented musician, artist and poet. His home features his watercolors and a collection of musical instruments. His interests ranged from classical guitar to stride piano, and he occasionally filled in for the church organist. He was working on a book of poetry when he became ill. He has also written extensively on the history of Crab Orchard and on biblical exegesis. His hobbies ranged from lapidary to astronomy, and he loved to read and to travel. He could speak several different languages, and had studied the Greek and Hebrew texts of the Bible.

In addition to his family, Mr. Fish’s faith was most precious to him. An elder in the Christian Church for nearly 60 years, he was also an ordained minister who often filled the pulpit, and he was a student of the Bible until his death. He and his family helped to establish West Towne Christian Church in Knoxville, Tenn., and the first minister of that church, C. Scott Richmond, will preside at Mr. Fish’s services. His service will be held in his beloved home church, Crab Orchard Christian.

JAMES, John Andrew

A pail of gloom and sadness was cast over our community Wednesday, June 3rd when it was told that John A. James had breathed his last at the home of his son on the Ottenheim Pike at Pine Grove. He had been in poor health for sometime but was not considered seriously ill until a couple of months ago. Advanced age and a complication of trouble was more than the weak form could stand and the end came about two o’clock Wednesday evening. He had told several of his friends he was prepared to meet his God. He was a member of the church of God and a good Christian man.

He was the son of Garland and Lucinda James who have long preceded him to the grave. His wife, who was Miss Julia Oakes, passed to the great beyond about thirty-five years ago. He lived with his son, mentioned above, for almost sixteen years, having conducted a small grocery store for about that long. Uncle John, as every one knew him, was clever, honest and upright in all his dealings. Had he been permitted to live until next February 3rd, he would have been 77 years of age. And through those almost 77 years, he had the privilege of seeing nine generations, remembered his great- great, grandmother and has great- great grand children. He was the father of nine children, four of whom survive him. They are; Garland James (James Garland James), Mrs. Clarence Woods of this county, Mrs. E. H. Manuel of Richmond and Walter James of Indianapolis. A daughter, Mrs. Andy Adams preceded him to the grave in December. He was the eldest child of a family of sixteen children, all of whom have passed on before him except tow brothers; C. M. James of this place and Henry James of Louisville. Thirty nine grandchildren, forty great grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren, twenty nieces and nephews and a host of friends are left to mourn his going. After brief services at the home, a large crowd followed the remains to the old family grave yard where he was laid to rest by the side of his wife. Pall bearers were his grandchildren and honorary pallbearers were his nephews…A friend.
