JAMES "JIM" RIDDELLE JR. March 23, 1931 - April 19, 2014 "Jim is remembered for being endlessly patient, extremely generous with his time and skills, and his never-failing punctuality." James "Jim" Riddelle Jr., 83, of Vancouver, WA, passed away peacefully on Sat., April 19, 2014, with family at his side. He was born to James Sr. and Beulah Riddelle on March 23, 1931 in Alexandria, VA. Jim worked for United Airlines for 42 years, initially with Capital Airlines at Washington DC's National Airport. After Capital merged with United, Jim continued at Washington National, progressively transferring to Norfolk, VA, Omaha, NE, and finally Portland, OR (PDX). Always a prankster, Jim is remembered for his playful teasing and quick wit. He practiced and preached "don't take yourself too seriously", epitomized by his alter ego of many years, the clown named "Hi Pockets". This combined Jim's love of making people laugh and his desire to volunteer. Jim continued to be active after retirement in 1993, volunteering at PDX airport, the United Airlines Retirees program, Habitat for Humanity, serving lunch at Share House, delivering mail at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center, and working with Vancouver's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Jim is survived by his children, Jeffrey (Cheryl) Riddelle, Michael (Dawn) Riddelle, and Kathryn (Mark) Spencer; grandchildren, James, Paige, and Kendall Riddelle; and his loving partner, Dreenali Krueger. He was preceded in death by his wife, Sharon Riddelle; and sisters, Hazel Hammond and Kathryn Coleman. A memorial service will be at 2:00 p.m., Sun., April 27, 2014 at First United Methodist Church, 401 E. 33rd St., Vancouver, WA 98663. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be sent to Hospice Southwest, PO Box 1600, Vancouver, WA 98668. Please share memories at www.VancouverFuneral Chapel.net and www.columbian.com/obits .
