James married the love of his life, Mary Emma Middleton, on August 7, 1965. Together they celebrated over 53 years of marriage before her untimely passing in July, 2019. They were blessed to be parents to four (4) wonderful children, Johanna, James Jr, Jonathan, and Jessica; and then to welcome ten (10) grandchildren.
He possessed a strong work-ethic that allowed him to own and operate, Middleton Manor Farms, Inc., where he was a major proponent of turfgrass in MD. He enjoyed working on his farm and being outdoors. Jim loved being a farmer and was happiest walking around the farm soaking up the sunshine. Jim was a devote Catholic and worshipped his Lord and Savior with his heart and soul. He was devoted to being a good husband, father and grandfather. He found great joy in singing with the choir at St. Mary's Bryantown Catholic Church.
