James Windsor - Eastern Arizona Courier

Sunday, February 12, 2017

He worked sometime with Phelps Dodge in Bisbee until an extended strike sent him to Monroe, Wisc., to work on an assembly line for the Phillips Corporation.

He was an avid bowler, always bowling on a team with his brothers. The Windsor team was the team to beat.Jim is survived by: four brothers, Art (Betty) Windsor and Bill Windsor, of Silver City N.M., and Lee (Frankie) Windsor, Bob (Maureen) Windsor, of Safford; sister-in-law, Sandy Windsor, of Safford; and many nieces and nephews.
