James Alfred Oliver, Jr.

February 13, 1952 — April 22, 2022

James Alfred Oliver, Jr., age 70, left this earthly world to join his beloved wife in Heaven, on Friday, April 22, 2022, at Johnson City Medical Center.

James was born on February 13, 1952 in Sullivan County, Tennessee to James Alfred Oliver, Sr. and Pauline Feathers Oliver. He graduated from Sullivan East High School in 1970. He then earned his bachelor’s degree in Education from ETSU in 1973. He also married the love of his life, Judy Lewis Oliver in 1973.

He was a member of Edgefield United Methodist Church in Piney Flats.

James was a 6th grade teacher at Bluff City Middle School his entire career. He taught history and social studies. His passion for history went beyond the classroom, and he was always happy to give a history lesson to those he cared about.
James and Judy were both teachers and they loved spending their summers together, traveling and going on other adventures. He also enjoyed his time visiting the casinos. James had a huge heart, and it was important to him to help others. He will be greatly missed.

He was preceded in death by his father and his beloved wife.

Those left to cherish his memory include his loving mother, Pauline Oliver; one aunt; several uncles; many cousins; and special furbabies, Guchie and Chola.

The family will receive friends from 5:00-7:00 pm on Thursday, April 28, 2022 at Edgefield United Methodist Church (745 North Pickens Bridge Road, Piney Flats, TN 37686).
