Services Wednesday for Shoreline builder Jim Abbott

Sunday, October 27, 2019

A celebration of life will be held on Wednesday October 30, 2019 at 11am at Sand Point Country Club, 8333 55th Ave NE, Seattle 98115 for former Shoreline resident Jim Abbott.

Jim and his family lived in Shoreline for 25 years. Jim practiced law for 16 years before transitioning to a career in commercial construction and development. He ran his construction and leasing business from an office building at the head of Echo Lake.

He built the greenhouses for Sky Nursery and the Discount Tire building on Aurora. He built the Dale Turner YMCA. He was managing partner and builder for Gateway Plaza at 185th and Aurora.

Vicki Stiles, Shoreline Rotary Club Executive Secretary:
Jim was a dear friend to many of us, and his kindness, generosity and sense of humor filled a special place in our lives. Jim joined Shoreline Breakfast Rotary in 2002, and was president of the club in 2010-2011. He was a true example of Rotary’s motto, “Service Above Self” and as a Rotarian, he was honored to be recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow many times over. Jim quietly helped countless people and numerous organizations in Shoreline, never seeking recognition for himself.

Jim is survived by his beloved Alice and their two children, Allison (Matt) and Tyler (Michelle). Jim is also survived by two grandsons (Wyatt and Brock), his brother John (Kelly) and sisters Katie (Larry) and Lynne.
