Default Trainman-2 / Jim Massfeller

Jim passed away yesterday around 8:55p after a valiant battle against cancer. I know he'd been active here for many years and that folks would want to know. You can read up on his journey the last few months in the link provided below.


James “Jim” Eastman Massfeller
5/2/1944 - 1/10/2019

Jim Massfeller passed peacefully at Florida Hospital Flagler Hospice, after a bout with cancer at his home near Bunnell, FL. Jim was born in Wilmington, DE and raised in Newark, DE, graduated from Newark Senior High School and later, Wilmington Collage. Jim was a teacher in Delaware and Florida, and was popular with his students. He was also a long-term member of the national guard, serving both in Delaware and Florida; he transferred to the army, full-time active duty, and was assigned to the Pentagon for six years and also served in Panama. He retired from the army as Lieutenant Colonel. Jim loved cruises – he was always a Royal Caribbean cruiser. He was also a model train buff; he belonged to several train clubs on the east coast. Jim was a Life member of the Ormond Beach Historical Society and a member of the Palm Coast Yacht Club. Jim spent many hours volunteering at the Florida Agricultural Museum. Jim is a past member of the Corvette Club and was an active poster to the Corvette Forum. Jim was pre-deceased by his parents, Kurt and Margaret Massfeller. Jim is survived by his wife Judith and by his younger brother, Tom Massfeller. Services will be private. Donations in his memory may be made to the Florida Agricultural Museum,

Please keep his wife Judith in your prayers.
