A. James English, Jr.

On November 15th, 2017 Jim English was laid to rest after a small ceremony at the H.D. Oliver Funeral Chapel in Norfolk, VA.  Following the ceremony, a funeral procession journeyed to his final resting place at the Albert J. Horton Memorial Veterans Cemetery in Suffolk.

Jim English was the WCCL president for 17 years. He was also our friend and neighbor, and among other things, a Navy Veteran and ODU professor. Jim’s positive impact on both Wards Corner and the City of Norfolk was substantial, as shown by the proclamation presented to Jim by Mayor Kenny Alexander in January of 2017. The proclamation is featured in this months newsletter.

With Jim’s passing on November 7, we say a sad goodbye to our friend — a true Norfolk leader for over 40 years. Jim, you will be missed.
