James E. Spedden of Gainesville, Virginia, passed peacefully on December 18, 2016.   He is survived by his wife Launie Spedden, sons James E. Spedden, Jr. and Kenneth A. Spedden.  Loving father-in-law to Jennifer Spedden and Katarina Spedden.   Devoted grandfather to Jenna S. Spedden, Jamie C. Spedden, Connor W. Spedden and Colten K. Spedden.  He is also survived by his sister Barbara J. Spedden and his brother Arthur L. Spedden, Jr and his wife Joshlyn Spedden.  Born and residing in Virginia for most of his life James dedicated much of the twilight of his time on this earth in service to God through personal evangelism and a committed focus to be in relationship with his Heavenly Father.  A gifted athlete in his youth, sports played a very active role in his professional passion and interests.  Our family is comforted knowing that he is in Heaven and by the prayers and support offered by both our friends and Church family members.
