James Lynn Kennington
James Lynn Kennington, 64, of Myrtle Beach, S.C. passed away July 3, 2009, after a long illness, surrounded by his close friends.
James was preceded in death by his wife, Rachel Dorothy Levy; his parents, Jerry and Mary Elizabeth Kennington, brothers, Bobbie Ray Kennington and Jerry Kennington, Jr. and sisters, Geraldine Odom, Tommie Helen Young, and Ruby Lee McCann.
James is survived by two sisters, Dott Tipper of Quincy, Florida and Ann Poppell (Jerry) of Havana, Florida; a special niece, Mary Barfield (Kenneth) of Quincy, Florida and a number of nieces and nephews and many cousins who loved him.
James was born on August 23, 1945, in New Boston, Texas. He graduated high school in 1963 at the Quincy Jr./Sr. High School and attended the University of Florida. And after years of night studies, he graduated in 1989 from the University of North Carolina. Although a very shy and humble individual, he was very intelligent. He loved to read and work on the computer. And to work crossword puzzles. He could draw anything and he wrote short stories. He would have made a great doctor if he hadn't been afraid of blood.
James worked for a major credit investigation company in North Carolina and was also co-owner of Kennington and Taylor Commercial Collection Specialists Credit Investigations in Archdale, North Carolina. His last employment was with American Express in High Point, North Carolina.
James was of the Baptist faith.
The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to Linda and Mike Buckland and family of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for the care that they provided James in his last years.

Memorial service was held on Sunday, July 5, 2009 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, at the First Free Will Baptist Church. Faith Funeral Home in Havana is in charge of arrangements. (850-539-4300 or )
