James Wallace Baldwin II, 60, of The Dalles, Ore., died Nov. 17, 2009, at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Ore. He was born in Los Angeles, Calif., to Jim and Carol Baldwin.
Jim grew up in southern California. As a child he spent most of his days playing at the beach. As a young adult he married the love of his life, Teresa, and together they had their only child, Gina.
In 1977 the family made the move to Oregon where Jim spent many years working in the aluminum industry in The Dalles. He was an avid landscaper and skillful carpenter.
Jim had a great love and adoration for his pet dogs, Ruffles, Lacey and Ebony. When he had the opportunity he loved to spend time hiking in the mountains or walking along the beaches on the Oregon coast.
Jim had a big heart of compassion and was always lending a helping hand to his neighbors and friends in need. He was well-known for his witty humor and charm and could always make you laugh.
Jim will be greatly missed by his family and friends. We Love you!
