James Kuhn, 71, passed from this life on 7/18/2017. Jim, the son of Edward and Thelma Kuhn was born in Rochester, NY. After graduating from high school, Jim joined the U.S. Army and served as an Electronics Technician in various places, including Korea. After the service, Jim attended Rochester Institute of Technology earning a degree in Electrical Engineering. He worked for several Rochester companies, ending his career at Eastman Kodak Company.
Jim was a jack-of-all trades who could repair appliances, computers, cars, and boats.
Jim and his wife, Margaret, bought a cottage on Honeoye Lake and Jim built closets and kitchen cabinets, laid flooring, and installed all the plumbing and electrical work including sinks, a fireplace/heater, and the appliances. In the summer, Jim and Margaret enjoyed taking their pontoon boat on the lake for fishing and tubing. In the winter, they enjoyed ice fishing, snow shoeing, and cross-country skiing on the lake.
In 2011, they moved to The Villages, FL and Jim pursued his love of golf. Playing almost every course in The Villages, Jim made 4 holes-in-one in 4 years. Jim was well known in his neighborhood for his morning walks with his beloved cockapoos, first Boots and then Chip. Other pastimes included cruising, eating out, solving word and number puzzles including crossword puzzles and Sudoku, genealogy research, reading, and listening to music in the squares.
Jim leaves his loving wife, Margaret, and sister, Janis, as well as cousins, and in-laws.
Memorial services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to a local no-kill animal shelter in Jim’s name.
