James Stanford Obituary

James G. Stanford

January 2, 1963 – February 2, 2024

 

James “Jim” Grover Stanford, age 61 of Monroe, passed away peacefully on February 2, 2024 at the Hospice of Northwest Ohio.

Born January 2, 1963 in Dearborn. He was the son of the late Will and Vonnie (Warrick) Stanford. Jim went to Taylor High School. He then went to Monroe Community College and received his associate degree in computer science. He then continued his education at Siena Heights University and received his bachelor's degree in business and computer science.

Jim then met and married the love of his life: Christine Gaynier on September 14, 1991 at St. Anne’s Catholic Church.  They enjoyed traveling up north together. They raised a family of four children and spent over 32 years together.

He certainly had a passion for computer sciences and technology. Jim was handy and had many different skill sets. He normally worked as a handy-man and took various contract jobs; he was often described as being a “jack of all trades.” In addition to that, he also worked at Monroe County Community College for a while. When his children were younger, he appreciated being at home with them and became a stay-at-home father.

He was an avid fan of both the Detroit Lions and Red Wings. His most cherished memories are with his sons. Jim used to coach his son’s roller hockey team.  He took great joy in watching Anime shows with them, especially. Outside of technology and all things computers, in his younger years, he loved gardening. One of his first jobs was at Smith’s Nursery and Landscaping. Animals also held a special place in his heart. Cats were among his favorites and had one named Cleo.

Beloved husband of Christine Stanford. Loving father of Jesse Stanford, Noah Stanford, Hope (Bryan) Russell, and Joseph Stanford. Dear brother of Will (Maureen) Stanford and Vonnie (Dennis) Fater. Jim was preceded in death by his parents.
