James Harold Wait James Harold Wait of Daytona Beach, FL passed away at the age of 76 on JANUARY 28, 2019 in Daytona Beach, Florida, surrounded by his loving wife and all 6 of his children.
He will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather to all that knew and loved him. He was born November 10, 1942 to Perry and Gladys Wait in Clinton, Iowa. He was preceded in death by his parents, 3 sisters, and 3 brothers.
Survivors include his wife Bonnie of 54 years, sons Jim, Jeff, and Robby, his daughters Sherry, Tammy, and Kristy, and their families, many grand and great grandchildren, his sister Marilou Finn and multiple relatives.
Jim graduated from the University of Iowa with Bachelor of Science in Pharmacology. He graduated from Texas Christian University with a Master of Divinity.
He worked as a pharmacist most of his life predominantly in hospital settings. He excelled in whatever he did. Some of his accomplishments include pharmacist of the year and top literature evangelist in the country. He started a pharmacy in the Sams club in Corpus Christi, Texas and in a short time grew to one of the largest in the country by loving the people and giving free waters to all of the customers and sharing bakery goods with many. He pastored in a few churches which grew to standing room only.
His greatest passion was reading his Bible and studying and teaching Greek and Hebrew. He could quote the book of Mark and spent hours with God each day. Heaven just wouldnt be heaven for him if any of his family was not there. His lifelong prayer is to enjoy all of his family and friends throughout eternity.
Choose today whom you will serve, but as for me and my family we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
