James F. “Jim” Houser, 63 of Orange Park, FL passed away Monday, March 8, 2021.  Jim was born in Washington DC and moved to Orange Park from Bowie, Maryland in 2006.  He had a true passion for life that was infectious to everyone around him.  He was a “big kid” at heart, a dedicated husband and father who put his family first in his life.  Throughout the years, Jim was active in Renaissance Fairs where he enjoyed the reenactments, especially as a Pirate.  This love brought him to attend many “Ren Fests” where he renewed friendships and made new ones, especially the children who he would give gold coins.  In all the activities that Jim was involved with, being a “Grand Dude” to six grandchildren and one great grandson was his favorite.

Mr. Houser is survived by his wife of 26 years, Carolyn Houser, children, Jesse (Paula) Houser, Kevin Rohlin, Heather Thompson, Rachel (Stacey) Houser, Harriette (Nelson) Soto-Perez, and Jamie (Coleman) Ashley, brother, Karl Houser, sister, Leslie Green, grandchildren, Desirae, Colin, McKenzie, Dillon, Luke, and Kayley, one great grandson, Mason.

A Celebration of Life will be held 11:00 AM Saturday, March 13, 2021 in the Chapel of Russell Haven of Rest.

Arrangements are under the care of Russell Haven of Rest Cemetery, Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 2335 Sandridge Road, Green Cove Springs, FL  32043.  Family and friends may share their condolences at: 904-284-7720
