James G. AldersonJames G. Alderson, 73, of Barboursville, WV, left this world for a better place on September 19th, 2020. Jim grew up in Hinton, West Virginia and graduated from Hinton High School. He later went on to attend Marshall University. Jim was married to Kitty Alderson for some 35 years. He left behind one sister, Martha, and two sons, Tommy and Tracy, from a previous marriage. Jim also left behind three grandchildren and three stepsons. Jim was a wonderful husband, brother and father. Jim was also held in high regard in the communities of Barboursville and Huntington and was an active member in the Masonic Lodge #13 A.F. & A.M., Barboursville. He was retired from Iron Age Shoe Safety Shoe Co. where he spent over twenty years servicing mining and construction sites in West Virginia and the surrounding areas. Jim loved to fish and hunt in his free time but his top priority was his family. We will miss him forever and his passing has not been without a great deal of sadness. Men with Jim’s moral character and genuine kindness don’t come along very often. Visitation will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, September 27, 2020 at the Wallace Funeral Home & Chapel, Barboursville.

Jim was a high school friend who was very loyal and a lot of fun. Since I live in the northeast, I have not seen him in years, but will always remember him as a true friend. Paul R. Adkins.

We missed our annual visits with Jim at Bargers this summer and hated to hear of his passing. I have summer memories of him and his parents and sister that go wayyyy back. A great guy who always had some stories to tell.
