Obituary for Jim D. McCartney

August 11, 1928 - January 1, 2019
Austin, Texas | Age 90


Our much beloved, Jim D. McCartney, age 90 years, resident of Austin, Texas since 2007, passed away on Tuesday, January 1, 2019. He was born in Talpa, TX on August 11, 1928, the sixth of seven children born to Joe and Beulah McCartney.

He was married to Jerline (Buxkemper) on September 7, 1948 in Rowena, TX and they had 64-plus years together. She preceded him in death in 2012.

Jim's brothers: Curtis and Vernon, and sisters: Lillian, Lois, and Vivian, along with their spouses have all preceded him. Additionally, Jerline and Jim's oldest son, David J. passed in 1996.

Jim is survived by his daughter, Debra (Austin, TX); son, G.W. (San Antonio, TX). His grandson, Shane J. McCartney, his wife, Rebecca; great-grandchildren, Michele and Colton (all of Tilden, TX); and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews (actually they are all pretty "great").

Rebecca McCartney expressed all of our feelings and sentiments in a message sent to family and friends on Facebook and we would like to repeat it here:

"January 1, 2019 we said goodbye to the pillar of the McCartney clan. Jim lived a life full of adventures in his 90 years. He was the best storyteller, master electrician, sheep and goat rancher, 42 (card) partner and babysitter we could have asked for! He taught us many life lessons some that we liked and others that we have grown to appreciate with wisdom. RIP Granddad. We will miss you."

Graveside Service 2:00 pm on Sunday, January 6, 2019 at Eden Cemetery in Eden, TX.
