BROWNVILLE - James A. Witham, 45, died unexpectedly at his residence in Brownville Nov. 6, 2005. He was born May 5, 1960, in Milo, the son of Chester and Margaret (Burgoyne) Witham of Brownville. Jim was a typical "Mainer" and enjoyed the laid back way of life. He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, four wheeling and camping. Jim was a veteran of the U.S. Army. He was currently employed by Guilford Industries of Maine for 19 years as a weaver. He would refer to himself as "one mean weaving machine", with pride in his voice.
Jim was predeceased by his son, Joshua Cunningham-Witham in July 1993. In addition to his parents, he is survived by four siblings, Jerald of Brownville, Jon of Bradford, Jenise McSorley and her husband, Bill, of Brownville and Jeffrey and Ann Witham of Brownville; two very special nephews, Jesse and L.J.; many aunts, uncles, cousins, as well as numerous friends, coworkers and a special group of poker buddies. He will be sadly missed by his loving companion, Barbie Pickens, of Sangerville.
