James Hiddleston, son of James and Mary Hiddleston, was born Aug. 1, 1940, in Glasgow, Scotland, and passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Friday, March 24, 2017.
He lived a full life. He married Rena Campbell in 1963 and they moved to South Africa, where they lived for four years. They came back to Scotland in 1967 and lived there for nine years with their three daughters, Karin, Susan and Wendy. In 1978 they moved their family to Sao Paulo, Brazil, and lived there until they moved to Staunton, Va., in 1982.

He worked for American Safety Razor for 35 years, and accepted all the opportunities offered to him to move all over the world. He loved people, and had an amazing zest for life, but his passion was his family, and his eight grandchildren. He loved watching them all play sports, and enjoyed all their time together at the Lake and playing marbles with their Bop. He was an avid soccer player and played for the U18 Boys team for Scotland – his commitment to hard work was indisputable; he thrived on always giving his best to his family and life as a whole.

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Rena; his three daughters, Karin Lindberg (Eric), Susan Oswald (Scott), and Wendy Daughtrey (Bill); his eight grandchildren, Erin and Brooke Lindberg, Tommy, Jimmy and Leah Daughtrey, Ryan, Alex and Cate Oswald; his sister-in-law Linda Whyte; his two sisters, Helen Fairbairn and Jan McLean; five nieces and nephews, Eleanor Robertson, David, Greg and Euan McLean, and Lynsey Fairbairn.

He will always be remembered for his amazing ability to make everyone feel so comfortable when around him; he engaged everyone and always had a story to share, always with a funny twist. We will all continue to remember him, and he will forever be with us.
