Obituary of James M. Owens
James M. Owens, 69, of Turnersville, New Jersey, passed away on Saturday, October 12, 2019 surrounded by his loving family.
A hard working man, James thought that honesty was the most important trait to have and he let you know that. He was a great judge of character and if James loved you, you knew and had a friend for life. Devoted to his family, James cherished time spent with his loved ones, including his pets. He was an avid Philadelphia sports fan and family and friends would often find James yelling at the Eagles or Phillies over stumbled plays. In his spare time, James enjoyed reading, playing golf and tending to his yard.
Born in Camden, NJ, James was a resident of Turnersville for over 40 years. Prior to retiring in 2016, he was a computer engineer for NCR Comten in Fort Washington, PA.
Beloved husband of 48 years to Wonphen "Linda" (nee Tongmain); devoted father of Michael (Jennifer) and Brad (Christina); cherished grandfather of Cole, Elaina, Chase, Kaiya and Kade; dear brother of Marianne Bryant and loving uncle of David Bryant; James is predeceased by his mother, Ethel (nee Gresch) Owens and his niece Sherry Bryant.
