James Edward (Jim) McCall, age 55, passed from this life to his heavenly home on November 1, 2020 in Reidsville, GA. He was born and raised in Lakeland, FL, where he lived his entire life.
He was a very successful Electro-Mechanical Technician in the Citrus Machinery Industry, and worked for Food Machinery Corporation, JBT, Florida Natural, and most currently with the Florida Department of Agriculture. Jim was an avid hunter, and enjoyed all things involved with saltwater fishing, boating and water skiing, and motorcycling.
