Obituary for James N. Underwood

James N. Underwood, age 95 of Shakopee, Minnesota, passed away on Thursday, January 25, 2018 at Emerald Crest in Shakopee.

Jim was born on July 15, 1922 in Smithville, Tennessee the son of Houston and Olivia (Patterson) Underwood. He married Evelyne Gay on December 20, 1941 in Smithville, Tennessee. Jim was a veteran of the United States Army and served during World War II. He was the owner of Underwood Construction where he worked with underground utilities.

Jim enjoyed his occupation, golfing was his sport, and he loved his family. His family always came first, and he was very generous to many causes. Many people have said, “that man meant so much to me!” Faith was very important to him as well.

“Jim was an overcomer, and faced many challenges in life, and figured out how to best deal with and handle them. And I know he overcame this last one as well. His faith in Jesus Christ gave him a confident hope and expectation for his future after his life here.”

Jim is preceded in death by his wife, Evelyne; son, Jim; parents, Houston and Olivia; 2 sisters and 2 brothers. He is survived by sons, Ed (Patrice), Marty (Kristine); grandchildren, Lance (Kristen), David (Cathie), Kelly Ann (Russ) Stolarski; 11 great-grandchildren; 2 great-great-grandchildren; brother, Roger (Miriam); sister, Doris (Bert) Hare.
