"Yesterday is dead-forget it,
Tomorrow has not come-don't worry.
Today is here-use it."
|A graveside service was planned at 1 p.m.
today at Maplewood Cemetery for TVA civil engineer and former Parisian James William
Hurdle Jr. of Franklin. Jim Taylor was to officiate.
Visitation was Sunday at Williamson Memorial Funeral Home in Franklin.
Hurdle, 86, died Saturday, June 14, 2008.
Hurdle was a son of the late James William Hurdle Sr. and Kate Adams Hurdle. He was the widower of Ruby Jane Friedley Hurdle.
Hurdle worked for TVA for 41 years. He was a member of a Masonic lodge in Gallatin.
James' military service of note would be that he served with the
8th Field Artillery Battalion and served in France, Belgium, and Germany during the period
preceding, during, and succeeding "The Battle of the Bulge." His surveying
skills were primarily pin-pointing the artillery locations of the Germans and setting
trajectories for the U.S. artillery responses and support of ground forces close-in.
