James W. Harding, Sr.

We join together to offer heartfelt condolences to Dr. Lynne Simpson-Harding and Sydney M. Scott as they mourn the loss of James W. Harding, Sr. James passed away unexpectedly during a fishing accident on April 29, 2020. He was 55 years.

James was a beloved teacher, coach and mentor at Star Spencer High School. His career spans more than 30 years of service to youth and his community. James’ free time was devoted to spending time with his family or on his boat fishing. He never met a stranger and his contagious laugh will be missed by all who knew him.

We ask for continued prayers for our family wife Dr. Lynne Simpson-Harding; son James Jr. (Chara); daughters Lauren, Christina and Sydney; and grandchildren Chalyse and James III.
