Obituary of James Allen Mason

James (Jim) Allen Mason died on September 30, 2023, in Newberg, Oregon, surrounded by his family. Jim was born January 14, 1952, in Vancouver, Washington to Delmar and Ruth Mason. He attended Benson High School, then and all boys technical school, where he ran track. He graduated in 1970. In December of 1972, he married the love of his life, Sandra (Sandy), to whom he was married for nearly 51 years until his death. Jim and Sandy welcomed two sons into their family, Daniel and Christopher, who would later bless them with three grandsons, Jeremiah, Dillon, and Michael. After graduating high school, Jim began working for Fred Meyer in the print department and served them for over 33 years. After Fred Meyer, Jim went on to work for IKON until 2010 when he suffered a mild stroke leading him into retirement. Jim moved his family from Beaverton to Sherwood, Oregon in 1976 where he helped start New Life Assembly of God and served as a Deacon and Usher. Jim was a committed father who helped with his sons’ Cub Scout groups and co-coached their indoor and outdoor soccer teams. He was very proud of his family. In 2004, Jim and Sandy moved to Newberg, Oregon to be closer to their grandkids. Jim loved sports and played basketball and fast-pitch softball. He enjoyed fishing, golfing, and camping – especially with his kids and grandkids. Jim was preceded in death by his father Delmar and mother Ruth. Jim is survived by his wife Sandra; sons Daniel (Tracey) and Christopher; Grandsons Jeremiah, Dillon, and Michael; siblings Leah Mason-Woods, Ralph, David (Robin), and Patty Hunt (Ted); as well as friends and extended family. He will be missed. In His Grip, we pray – Rest in Peace.
