James Wallace Berwick, Jr., born Aug. 7, 1932, in Lincoln, Delaware, passed away on Oct. 21, 2018.

James graduated from the University of Delaware before moving to Seattle to work for Boeing as a flight controls engineer. While working for Boeing, he helped plan and develop several Boeing jets, most notably the 737, his favorite.

James also spent time working for JPL in Los Angeles, and for NASA, helping with the Space Shuttle. He also spent time in the Mediterranean on the USS Coral Sea while serving in the U.S. Navy.

He met his beloved Marjory May Williams at Boeing, and they married in 1965. They visited Hawaii together, and he would occasionally take her with him to London on his work trips. In 1969, they were blessed with a son, James Berwick III.

James is survived by his wife Marjory and his son “Jim”; his brothers Walter Berwick, Edward Berwick, and Ronald Berwick, of Delaware, and Richard Berwick, of Florida; and his sister, Patricia Biddle, of Delaware. He was preceded in death by his mother Gladys (Fitzgerald) Berwick and father James Berwick Sr.; also by his brother Albert Berwick.

Interment will be held at Edens Cemetery of Guemes Island at a later date.
