Today would be my husband Jim’s 50th birthday if he hadn’t passed away from Marfan’s Syndrome in 1997, age 35. So here is to the wonderful life of James Francis Asuncion ~ 18 November 1961 – 5 July 1997. A wonderful and much loved husband and step-father. Jim served here in Haifa from 1984 to 1986 at the Bahá’í World Centre in the Department of Security. He studied philosophy at Humboldt State University and worked at the Bosch Bahá’í School in Santa Cruz, California. A very devoted Bahá’í, he is buried in Soquel Cemetery near Capitola, California.
