On Monday, June 16, 2014, God reached down and selected a very special shamrock from the earth. James Anthony Milloy joined the Lord in Heaven. He was 85.He was born in Tacoma, Washington on May 4, 1929. Jim was married to the late Joanna (Tainter) Milloy, with whom he shared 39 years of marriage before her passing on Dec. 15, 1991.
Jim graduated from Saint Martin's College in Olympia, Washington. After graduation he joined the US Army where he attended Officers Training School in Fort Riley, KS. Upon completion of Officers Training School, he served as the Finance Auditor in Frankfurt, Germany. He was honorably discharged with the rank of Captain. He then began an accounting career with a firm in Olathe, KS. After several years, he moved on in his career as an auditor for the Department of Transportation for the US Government. Jim was transferred to the Philadelphia office in 1979 and chose the Bucks County area to live.
Jim lived in the Bucks County area for 35 years. During that time he continued his work as a Federal Auditor for the Department of Transportation in the Philadelphia, PA and Baltimore, MD offices.
