Obituary: James Stringham, 73, of Ludington.

James D. Stringham, 73, of Ludington passed away Wednesday, March 2, 2022. He was born May 26, 1948 in Lansing to Charles and Florence (Forcheck) Stringham. Jim graduated from Eastern High School in Lansing in 1966. He played baseball in high school and into his adulthood he continued to play and enjoy the game. He went on to work for GM and retired from there after 30 years with the company. 

Jim married Glory Jean Fleming on November 3, 1990 in Laingsburg. In his spare time he enjoyed woodworking, fishing, and playing golf. He loved the outdoors, especially the beach, and he loved to take a swim every day in the summer. Jim was a very social person. He often would take walks down a fishing pier or along a stream and instantly make friends with the folks fishing there. He liked to take trips to the state park to visit with folks or even just to count cars.
