James “Jim” Galbraith Auld, 91, husband of Roseann Auld, died peacefully in his sleep at home Thursday, January 11 in Collegeville, PA.
Jim was born in Ayr, Scotland and immigrated to the United States in 1960 with his wife and eldest daughter Elizabethann. He lived most of his life in Philadelphia before moving to Elkton MD, Bristol PA, and finally Collegeville PA.
Jim was a skilled Journeyman Plasterer by trade. He also spent many years working for national food distributors Sealtest and Nabisco, before retiring from Abington Memorial Hospital.
He was a devoted father and grandfather who enjoyed taking his family for Sunday drives and to the Philadelphia Phillies baseball games. He adored his granddaughter Allison and always cherished the time they spent together. In addition to being an avid Philadelphia sports fan, he also enjoyed Thoroughbred Horse Racing and British Soccer. He loved traveling with his beloved wife and especially enjoyed cruising to the Caribbean.
Jim kept his family, friends, and all he met laughing with his sense of humor, sharp wit, and silly songs. He remained proud of his Scottish heritage and was a loyal Scotsman to the end.
Surviving along with his wife of 70 years Roseann, are his daughters Elizabethann and Heather, son Robert, daughter in law Kathleen, and granddaughter Allison.
