Ex-Chief James Fair Passes


Friends and family, we will be gathering at the East Millstone Methodist Church (Elm St, East Millstone) for a celebration of James’ life. Services will be held at 2pm on April 5th, 2014. After the services, all are welcome to join us at our firehouse (Millstone Valley Fire Department) for food, drinks, laughs and reminiscing.


It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Ex-Chief and Life Member James Fair. In addition to his service with the Millstone Valley Fire Department James served his community as a Fire District #1 Commissioner, and Captain of the East Millstone First Aid Squad. James was a cornerstone of the East Millstone community devoting his life to helping others, mentoring the town’s youth and strong leadership to his emergency services peers.

At this time the family will be holding services in Florida, where James lived. A memorial is being planned in East Millstone for the spring time to celebrate his life.  As more information becomes available we will update this post.

  1. James, you were always a great mentor to many of the youth of East Millstone including me. Although I haven’t seen anyone since those days back in the 70’s I was shocked to learn of your passing. I will be praying for peace, understanding and the Lords comfort for those you’ve left behind. God bless you James.
    Yours in Christ Jesus,
    Jeff Jansen of Elm St.

  2. I have great memories of James from the mid to late 70’s when I was hanging out in E. Millstone. He was like everybodys big brother and he sure as hell looked out for us. Rest in peace big man.

  3. Poppa J you will be so missed. You had such a big heart and loving spirit. I know when you transitioned on to a better world Erika was there waiting with that mega watt smile of hers. No worries “The Girls” are watching out for Mama J as always she’s holding on to her faith and God is keeping her. Missing and loving you.

  4. James’ was a life well lived as is evident from everything his heart and his hands touched. We can see thatJames was a blessing to his Millstone family/community. To God be the glory! Jim’s legacy of love, faith and service will live on in Jacquie,his precious wife, and in those of us who we’re blessed enough to have walked part of our life journey in the shadow of this “godly giant.” Thanks, JB, for sharing photos of Jim with his Millstone FD buddies with us. Our prayers are going forth for you and for your family.

  5. Rest in Peace Jim. I have so many fond memories of the times we worked and spent together from when I graduated Franklin High in 1974. I met Jim when we worked together at the Franklin Twp. Water Dept. Jim was a great friend and a unique individual. I am happy that I got to know him and still live by some of his advice and examples. My sincere condolences to his family.
