James A. Wofford, III "Jim" 74, husband of Janice Wofford, passed away on Friday, May 29, 2020 at his residence.
Born in Tryon, GA, Jim was the son of the late James A. Wofford, Jr. and Hilda Fulton Wofford.
He was a retired Chemist from JP Stevens, Ethox Chemical, and a retired Humana Insurance Salesman.
Jim's pride and joy were his two MGB cars and all the British memorabilia he collected through the years. He was an enthusiastic Southern train collector and was very knowledgeable in the different steam trains. Jim loved to carry on conversations with anyone who enjoyed the same hobby, and very often, you would find him riding the steam trains regardless of the distance he had to travel.
Jim was a parishioner of The Anglican Church of St. George the Martyr.
In addition to his wife of 50 years, he is survived by his beloved Jack Russell, Chance; and his sister, Wanda Kendall.

For those wishing to view, the body will lie in state Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. in the Southeast Chapel of Thomas McAfee Funeral Homes. A private funeral service will be held on Thursday, June 4, 2020 at The Anglican Church of St. George the Martyr followed by burial in Cannon Memorial Park.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to The Anglican Church of St. George the Martyr, 427 Batesville Road, Simpsonville, SC 29681.
