Dr. James (Jim) Comer Gaither, Sr., passed peacefully at his home in Newton, North Carolina, Sunday evening at 10:30 pm, January 15th, 2017. Dr. Gaither suffered from Leukemia and was taken home to our Lord after an extended battle with the illness.

Dr. Gaither loved the community where he was born, and he returned following medical school with his beloved wife Rachel to found his medical practice and raise a family.

Dr. Jim Gaither was born October 19th, 1934 in Newton, North Carolina, to Mrs. Allie Comer Gaither and William Cowles Gaither. Jim and Rachel Gaither were married on September 8, 1959 at the Davidson College Chapel.

Dr. Gaither attended Newton Conover High School and graduated in 1953. Jim went on to attend Davidson College where he majored in Biology and graduated in 1957. While attending Washington University Medical School in St. Louis Jim met the love of his life and his wife of 57 years, Rachel Cole.

Before returning to begin his practice as one of the youngest physicians at the newly constructed Catawba Memorial Hospital, Jim served in the United States Army where he was stationed overseas in Germany with his wife and young family.

Dr. Gaither opened his internal medicine practice with his friend and partner Dr. Arthur Lynn directly across the street from Catawba Memorial Hospital. After Gaither and Lynn were joined later by the late Dr. Edward Boone it was estimated that at one time the three physicians of Gaither, Lynn and Boone had over 20,000 Catawba County residents that called these physicians their doctor.

The medical practice of Gaither, Lynn and Boone continued to grow and eventually relocated under the name of Catawba Valley Internal Medicine. Dr. Jim Gaither admired and respected his colleagues and had the privilege of working with the fine men and women who make up one of the most respected medical communities anywhere.

Dr. Jim Gaither served on numerous boards and committees and was always available to serve the community he loved so much. He was a lifelong member of First Presbyterian Church of Newton. He shared a love of sports both as a participant and observer.

His humble and giving nature, his sharp wit and his enduring friendship and loyalty will be greatly missed by the many who knew and loved him.

Dr. Jim Gaither is survived by his loving wife, Rachel Gaither and by his brother and lifelong friend, Albert Gaither. Jim and Rachel Gaither had three children and eleven grandchildren.

Dr. Gaither is also survived by his son, James Comer Gaither, Jr. and his wife Beth Proctor Gaither and their four children, Amelia Wyant Gaither, Andrew Proctor Gaither, William Worth Gaither and James Nicholas Gaither.

Dr. Gaither is survived by his daughter, Rachel Leigh Gaither Maier, and her husband, Major Karl Patrick Maier, U S Army and their three children, Patrick Kenneth Maier, Jacob Comer Maier, and Clancy Alexandra Maier.

Harris Wakefield Asbury, Sr. ’53

Harris Wakefield Asbury, Sr., 85, of Opelika, passed away Thursday, January 5, 2017, following a brief illness.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at First United Methodist Church of Opelika at 1:00 p.m. CST on Saturday, January 7, with The Rev. Dr. Tim Thompson and The Rev. Dr. Randy Woodham officiating. A reception for family and friends will immediately follow the service in the fellowship hall.

Harris was born on D-Day, June 6, 1931, in Elberton, GA, the second son born to Alice “Sammy” and Frank Logan Asbury.

The family moved often with the textile industry during Harris’s life, landing in Opelika in 1944. It was there that he met and began dating Anna Cowart Salter. Harris lettered in football, basketball and baseball as an Opelika High School Bulldog.

Following graduation from OHS in 1949, Harris attended Davidson College before transferring to Emory University in Atlanta in 1950 where he played tennis and served as president of Kappa Alpha Fraternity and the Arnold Air Society. He graduated from Emory in 1953 with a degree in history. He joined the U.S. Air Force as a lieutenant and was based in Antigo, Wisconsin.

In October 1954, Harris traveled to Atlanta for a Georgia Tech football game, and Anna asked him to marry her; they were married six weeks later on December 18, 1954, at First United Methodist Church in Opelika.

After being honorably discharged from the USAF in the fall of 1955, the couple moved from Wisconsin to Atlanta where they lived until early 1960 when they returned to Opelika and Harris joined Alabama Office Supply, Co.

He took the reins of AOS in the late 60s; and although he handed the business over to his son, Wake, in the mid-80s, he continued to have a daily presence at the store until October, 2015.

Harris was an avid golfer, a member of Saugahatchee Country Club for many years and was very involved in the Opelika community. He coached Little League baseball, served as the local president of Kiwanis Club (1973-74), lieutenant governor of the Alabama District of Kiwanis International (1978-79), president of the Opelika Chamber of Commerce (1974), president of the Opelika Downtown Business Association (1976-77) and presided over many boards and committees at First United Methodist Church, where he was named Man of the Year in 1967.

He taught Sunday School classes at FUMC for more than 40 years, at least 25 of those teaching high school seniors. He was a scholar on the four Gospels, James and the Apostle Paul. Some who had Harris as a teacher credit him with teaching them everything they know about the Bible.

Harris was the ultimate “people person” with a genuine love for people. He went out of his way to help anybody he could in any way he could. He was a peacemaker who was very slow to anger and quick to forgive. He had a great sense of humor, loved to laugh, enjoyed a good story and/or joke and was a master at telling both.

He enjoyed being a part of several morning coffee clubs, the Cowboys and The Hustlers at SCC. He loved spending time with his numerous friends of all generations and walks of life, and especially with his family.

Harris was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Alice Asbury Stone, and his brother, Frank L. Asbury, Jr.

He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Anna; son and daughter-in-law, Wake (H. Wakefield Jr.) and Joan (Odom) Asbury; and daughter Kate Asbury Larkin, all of Opelika; six grandchildren, Tyler and Will Grogan and Field (H. Wakefield III) and Holly Asbury of Atlanta, Anna Asbury Larkin of Arlington, VA, Bo Larkin, Lucas Asbury, and Duncan Asbury, all of Auburn; and two great-grandsons, William Stark Grogan, Jr., and Bascom Asbury Grogan, both of Atlanta.

The family would like to thank all their friends for their incredible support, especially, Bill Garrett, Bob Patton, David Canon, Gary Loper, Tonya Greathouse of Loving Hands Senior Care and her staff (Ahmed, Erica, Jessica, Diane, Sandra, Lexi and Stephen) and Compassus Hospice Care.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests a contribution be made to First United Methodist Church of Opelika (702 Avenue A, Opelika, AL 36801), the East Alabama Medical Center Foundation (2000 Pepperell Pkwy., Opelika, AL 36801) or any charity that assists those who need a helping hand.

Reid Garrett Hinson ’78

reidReid Garrett Hinson, 60, died unexpectedly on December 20, 2016 at his home in Charlotte.

Reid was born in Rockingham, NC on Nov. 11, 1956 to Robin Ledbetter Hinson and Frances Garrett Hinson, both of whom preceded him in death.

Reid is survived by his best friend and wife, Catherine Cooper, whom he adored; his brothers, Robin L Hinson, Jr. and Minor Thurlow Hinson; his sons, Reid G. Hinson, Jr. and Mills Gray Hinson; his step-daughter and step-son, Alice Williamson Jones (Heath) and Samuel Cooper Williamson (Linda Ketsche); and three step-grandchildren, Bennett, Clara, and Maxwell.

Reid grew up in Rockingham, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem. He was a 1974 graduate of RJ Reynolds High School, and a 1978 graduate of Davidson College. He then became a US Naval Officer for 5 years, retiring as Lt. Commander. During his Navy time he was Navigator as well as Gunnery & Assistant Combat Systems Officer on the destroyer USS O’Brien, and Professor of Naval Science at Mass. Maritime Academy.

Reid then attended UNC Law School, where he won American Jurisprudence Awards in Admiralty and Legal Research and Writing. He was admitted to the NC Bar in 1986.

Reid began his legal career in Wilmington, NC, first as associate and partner with the Murchison, Taylor firm, and in 1991 as partner with Clark, Newton, Hinson & McLean.

Reid was a trial attorney and represented business litigants, insurers, personal injury claimants, and defendants in matters such as shareholder, commercial lease and contract disputes, admiralty and maritime claims, products liability, and environmental matters.

He managed his firm while also being lead counsel in cases and appeals at all NC trial and appellate court levels, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, and the US Court of Appeals. Reid was a member of the Southeastern Admiralty Law Institute.

>In 1999, he relocated to Charlotte where he had his own general practice before joining the City Attorney’s Office in 2005. Beginning in 2006 he retired from active practice but continued to take document review projects until full retirement.

Reid was fond of saying that he “grew up in the country” in Richmond County, where he acquired his love of the outdoors, animals, general mischief, and driving any vehicle or piece of equipment which could be driven. His love of water began at Camp Sea Gull, and he became an expert boat captain and sailor.

While in the Navy he earned his private pilot license and enjoyed flying. Reid was musically gifted, and was a pre-teen prodigy as a bluegrass and old-time guitar player and singer.

At the age of 13, he hitchhiked to Deep Gap, NC, where he played music with Doc Watson and the Watson extended family, becoming adept at Doc’s singular cross-picking style. The old folks were quite impressed by his talent and taste.

Reid went on to perform solo, and with the “old timers” and others at festivals across the South. He worked as a studio musician in NY for friends on several important albums and later formed his own band locally.

Reid’s moral compass unerringly pointed to honor, integrity and, above all, kindness. His greatest gifts to his loved ones were his big and loving heart, keen intellect, and spirit of adventure and fun. Thank you, Reid.

A Memorial Service for Reid will be held at Providence United Methodist Church at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 29.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Habitat For Humanity, The Wounded Warrior Project, or other charity of your choice.
