James J. (Jim) Judge of Killington, born Dec. 3, 1935 in Staten Island, New York, died peacefully on Aug. 31 after a short illness in Dallas, Texas.
Jim Judge is survived by his wife, Kathy (née Garahan) following a loving marriage of over 51 years. He is also survived by his sister, Maureen (Sister Elizabeth Judge, a Sister of Charity), his nephews and niece, (Brian, Terence, Daniel and Jacqueline) as well as Kathy’s many siblings, nieces and nephew. He was predeceased by his brother, William Judge.
Jim Judge was an avid skier, who as a young man traveled around Europe testing his skills on the most challenging slopes. His love of skiing brought him to Killington where he and Kathy shared a life for 50 years before relocating to Dallas, Texas a year ago. He loved living on the mountain and felt fortunate to have found it as a home. He worked as a ski instructor and owned a property management business. He was also a “friend of Bill’s” for many years and joined others in that life changing experience.
A private service will take place in Dallas on Sept. 9. It is anticipated that a celebration of life will be held in Vermont sometime next spring.
