North Fork Mourns The Loss Of Jimmy Quilter

The community of North Fork is deeply saddened by the loss of a dear friend, neighbor and lender of helping hands, James Patrick Quilter.

Jimmy passed away on June 17, 2017, surrounded by family. He was 65 years old.

Born in Santa Monica, Calif., on Nov. 19, 1951, to James and Jean Quilter, Jimmy grew up in southern California in the 50s and 60s with his four brothers, living in Santa Monica and Thousand Oaks.

Jimmy and family moved to the mountain area over 30 years ago, and he will always be remembered as a cherished part of the North Fork community.

A beloved father, motorcycle rider, and local home builder, Jimmy was a confidant and tinkerer extraordinaire. Anyone who lives in North Fork has seen him participating and lending a hand at community events and local projects.

He would show up with his signature hat, a camera, a big smile and a great attitude.

He will live on in all the hearts of all those who knew him, and whose lives he touched.

Jimmy is survived by four children and five grandsons.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, June 24, at 9 a.m., at St. Joseph the Worker Mission, 56522 Rd 200 in North Fork.

There will be a potluck and Celebration of Life to follow, at 1 p.m. at Bandit Town, 55420 Rd 226, North Fork, CA. All are welcome.
