James E. Moneysmith

Sarasota, Fla. —  

James E. Moneysmith of Sarasota, Fla., formerly of Davenport, died Sept. 21, 2012, following five years of treatment for Multiple Myeloma cancer. He is survived by his wife, Kay. He is also survived by his daughter, Lisa, and son, Alan and wife, Catherine, all of Davenport and granddaughter, Rebecca of Oldsmar, Fla. Brother-in-law Jerry, sister-in-law Carol and several nieces, nephews and cousins also survive. He was preceded in death by his parents Azel and Ruby Moneysmith and his brother, Larry.

Jim was born and raised in Knoxville. He joined the Army in 1951 serving in Korea during the Korean Conflict. He was honorably discharged in 1953 and returned to Knoxville. In 1965 the family moved to Davenport. He was a millwright by trade working several years for International Multi Foods of Davenport. He was a proud member of First Christian Church in Davenport for 39 years. In 2004 he and Kay moved to Sarasota, Fla., where they joined Church of the Palms Presbyterian Church. Jim spent many Saturdays volunteering for Habitat for Humanity in Sarasota, work he thoroughly enjoyed. He was a man of many talents and always willing to help friends and neighbors however he could. He could repair almost anything and loved his tools and his workshop where he spent many happy hours. He was a wonderful husband, father and friend who will be greatly missed by all of us but we know he is now pain free and walking on "streets that are paved with gold" with all those loved ones who have gone before.

His Memorial Service were held at First Christian Church, 510 E. 15th St. in Davenport on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 11 a.m. Burial was at the Rock Island Arsenal National Cemetery. Memorial gifts may be directed to either First Christan Church or the American Cancer Society.
