Tetterington, James

James George Tetterington, 79, was called to his heavenly home on Saturday, February 24, 2024. He was born in Rockford, Illinois on January 24, 1945 and was a resident of Pride for many years. He was a carpenter by trade and a handyman for anything he put his mind to. James enjoyed spending time with his grandson and daughter, playing cards with his friends and family, fishing, watching westerns, and was a history buff. He was a devoted and loving husband, father, and Paw Paw.

James is survived by his daughter, Melinda Bass, Candace Tetterington, and his grandson Bentley James Tetterington.

He is preceded in death by his beloved wife of 42 years, Shirley Tetterington, sisters Darleen Breland, Sharon Thomas, and Ruth Tetterington, brother-in-laws Ray Breland (married to Darleen Breland) and LC Cochran (married to Sharon Thomas), and parents James Max Tetterington and Candace Rachel Tetterington.

The family gives its thanks to Harvest Manor Nursing Home and Life Source Hospice for all of their care. It cannot be put into words how loved and cherished James was and he will be dearly missed by his loved ones.
