James Earl Scurlock (aka Jimbo) was born June 20th 1959, in San Francisco, Calif., to Helen and Glenn Scurlock.
Jim spent most of his childhood in Daly City with his three brothers and two sisters. He attended the University of Chaminade in Hawaii before enlisting in the Marines.
After spending 10 years in the Marines stationed in Japan, Hawaii and California, he would later call Washington his home. While working for Microsoft he met the love of his life and future wife, Dawn Marie. Their love brought two families together on August 9, 1997, during a small ceremony in one of his favorite places — the California Redwoods.
He is survived by his wife of 14 years and their five children — Jim, Jacquie, David, Jesse and Jon.
After a 5-year battle with cancer, he passed away peacefully on September 8, 2011, at home surrounded by his family.
To his family and friends he will forever be remembered as outgoing, upbeat and always the life of the party.
One of Jim’s favorite pastimes was spending time with his family at their cabin in Cle Elum, riding snowmobiles and cruising on ATVs. He had a great love for Disney that he passed along to his family. Some of the best times of his life were spent with family and friends in “the happiest place on earth.” What made it the happiest place to his loved ones was the fact that they shared it with him.
At the office he was known as the “Master Trasher.”
His pranking and office decorating skills were notorious throughout Microsoft. He enjoyed leading morale events and activities and felt so lucky to have found a job he loved and a team he called family.
Around the community of Woodinville he loved coaching baseball and soccer for his sons’ teams. He was well-known and loved by all.
He spent his last months with his family and friends, going to Mariner games and having barbecues at his house and just enjoying life with everyone. One of his favorite sayings was “life is good” and “this doesn’t suck.” His smile and laughter brought out the best in everyone and he will be tremendously missed by all who knew him.
“God bless us, everyone.”
