Obituary for James Wade Estep

James Wade Estep, Age 79 of Auburn Hills. April 12, 2019 Dear father of Tammy (John) Evans, Michael (Tora) Estep, and Christina (Russ) Morris. Grandfather of Dewey, Sebastian, Jason, and Emily.

Jim is extremely proud of two daughters, a son, three grandsons and especially his blue-eyed blonde granddaughter.

He was raised on a dairy farm in the mountains of East Tennessee, served as a Russian translator for the Army Security Agency in Japan and Korea, and studied Slavic language and literature at U.C. Berkley.

At the CIA, he learned about computers and communication.

Jim was computer center manager at the U.S. Senate from its inception until it included a nationwide terminal network. He was also a contractor for NASA, the CIA, and the IRS.

Since his retirement in 2000, he has read a lot and played many happy hours of bridge and chess.
