Dr. James B. Calderbank

ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Dr. James B. Calderbank, age 74, my sweet husband of 27 years died peacefully on September 24, 2021.

He ended his journey at the John F. Keever Jr. Solace Center in Asheville after a four-month illness. He was born in Greenwich, Conn. to the late John Jacob Birrell Calderbank and the late Luise Helene Meyer Calderbank.

Jim had a way with words that I don’t possess and as I was struggling to find the right words, I thought, “I wish he were here to polish and rewrite this”. It would take much more than a few sentences to express how special he was to me and all our family and friends. He was a kind, compassionate physician in private practice in Internal Medicine for nine years followed by Emergency Room Trauma Care. He completed a second Residency in Anesthesia and worked 22 years as an Anesthesiologist. He retired in 2016 from Mission/St Joseph’s Hospital in Asheville, N.C. He enjoyed tinkering with toys, was an avid birder, loved riding motorcycles and was an experienced radio-controlled model pilot. We enjoyed many cross-country motorcycle trips together and many trips to beautiful places to photograph and watch wildlife. He possessed one of the most amazing brains with the ability to analyze and comprehend beyond my imagination. Jim completed his sacred and precious journey to Heaven surrounded by God’s saving grace and love in Jesus. I will miss him terribly, but he left behind many cherished memories of our life together. He will also be greatly missed by our poodle, Helton.

Jim is survived by myself, Sandra Mauney Calderbank, also known as Sandy Gram to the grandchildren; his son, Doug (Keri); his daughter, Jen (Scott); brothers, John (Nancy), and Dave (Judy); niece and nephew, Lizbeth and John. He was Grampy Jim to Ian, Ella, Quinn and Anna.

A Memorial Service for family and friends led by Dr. Michael Hester will be held at Sabbath Rest Farm, 152 Edna Roberts Drive, Alexander, NC 28701 on October 17, 2021 at 3 p.m.

Burial will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, October 18, 2021 in the Black Family section of the Cherryville City Cemetery, Cherryville, NC, led by Pastor Adam Guice.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Hillsdale College.

Condolences may be made to
