James E. Workman, 85, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, May 26, 2018. He was preceded in death by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William A. Workman (Hannah), and his brother, William Workman. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Carole Workman, and daughter, Jamie (Lyn) Ramp, as well as five grandchildren.
James (or Jim, as he was more commonly known) was born and raised in Saltville, VA. He served in the United States Air Force for nearly 10 years, touring in both Japan and Korea. Upon discharge, he began working for Olin Mathieson (now Olin Corporation), which brought him to Augusta, and where he worked until his retirement.
A stranger to no one, he was known by friends and family for his stories and was always inviting people to “come in the house.” He will be remembered fondly and missed forever.
Visitation will be held Sunday, June 3, 2018 from 5pm until 7pm at McNeill Funeral Home, 109 Shaw Street, Augusta, GA 30907. A graveside service will follow at 11am Monday at Hillcrest Memorial Park.
