Jim was born on January 27, 1942 in Chowchilla, California to Norman and Margaret Rayburn. He graduated from Chowchilla Union High School in 1960 and joined the United States Navy. While stationed in Rota, Spain he fell in love and married his lifelong wife, Loli Rayburn in her home town of Chipiona. From there they then traveled from Spain to Italy, and all around the United States with their 3 children.
After retiring from both the United States Navy and the United States Postal Service, Jim spent his time traveling with his beloved wife to Spain and in the United States; visiting family, children and grandchild.
Jim was as kind as he was stubborn, providing for his family, who meant more to him than anything else in the world; something he often mentioned. Anyone who knew Jim knew that he had a big heart, and a ready smile. His presence will be missed by all who knew him.
Jim is survived by his wife of 54 years, Loli Rayburn; his sons James “Jimmy”, David and Joseph “Joselito”; his daughter-in-law Maritza, son-in-law Josh and grandson James “Little Jimmy”.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
