James William Linthicum, 41, of Wichita, Kansas, passed away on September 21, 2018. He was born in Renton, Washington, on October 7, 1976. In August of 1985, at the age of eight, James was baptized into the Vancouver Restoration Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ by his adoptive father, Elder W. Ralph Linthicum. He and his family moved to Wichita, Kansas, when James was 14. The Linthicum family attended Zion’s Outpost, another Restoration Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ, for several years. During that time, James participated frequently in the church services by offering his gift of singing and was an active member of the Youth Department. At the age of 17, James was ordained to the office of priest by Elder Gene Holloway and Elder Ralph Linthicum.

During his adult years, James worked as a security guard and as a maintenance technician for his apartment complex. In 2011, he received a Citizen’s Appreciation Award from Wichita police for his heroic efforts in coming to the aid of a stranger who was being attacked.

James was preceded in death by his adoptive parents, Ralph and Evelyn Linthicum. He is survived by his biological and adopted siblings, his wife Amber, his son Bentley, and many other family members and friends.
