James William Root, Jr.

On Sunday, January 27, 2013, James William Root, Jr., age 73, of Raleigh, NC, formerly of Chevy Chase, MD, passed away. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Ann Lloyd Root; four children, James Christopher Root, Robin MacRae Root, Wendy Ann Root and Jennifer Lloyd Root; son in law, Bruce Davidson; grandchildren, Sonya Davidson and Teddy & Charlotte Duffy; brother, Russell Baden Root and sister in law, Maureen Root; brother in law, Mark Lloyd and sister in law, Karen Lloyd; and nieces and nephews, Kelly Dyott, Matthew Root, Scott Lloyd and Kim Godwin. Mr. Root enjoyed a rewarding and successful career at IBM, beginning in 1967 and retiring in 1997.
