James S. Scullin

James "Jim" S. Scullin, 79, passed away at Augusta Health in Fishersville, VA on Monday, February 19, 2024. 

He was born in 1945 in Philadelphia, PA, to his loving parents Simon James Scullin and Margaret Anna Kreiger Scullin. His grandmother, Anna Scullin and his aunt, Anne Scullin played a significant role in his upbringing.

Jim embarked on his professional journey by working various locations throughout the A&P grocery store chain, before transitioning to a major Philadelphia bank during the era when computers emerged as the size of city blocks. His expertise lay in the intricate realm of financial computing, where he left an indelible mark through his precision and diligence. His career of over 50 years reached beyond the ages of many of his coworkers at Fisher Auto Parts.

A graduate of St. Joseph Preparatory School, Jim's thirst for knowledge was evident throughout his life. An animal lover with a particular fondness for Tennessee Pleasure Walking Horses, he found solace and joy in their graceful presence. He enjoyed a longtime passion for trains and trollies.

Among Jim's many passions was his role as "The Dish Enabler" within the Fiestaware community—a testament to his generosity and warmth that touched countless lives. He also orchestrated the Virginia Gated Jubilee Horse Event with finesse and served as a former director of FOSH (Friends of Sound Horses), channeling his devotion to equine welfare into meaningful action.

Jim is survived by his longtime partner, Rachel Hughes; his son, Jim Scullin and his wife, Christi; his daughter Susanna Hope and her husband, Chadd; his grandchildren, Gail Scullin, John William Hope, Makenzy Hope; the mother of his children, Susanne Scullin; his sister-in-law, Linda Parry and her husband, Mike Folkoff; his niece and nephew, Bev and Martin; and Vinny the Little Prince, his beloved pet cat.
