Charles James (Jim) Cawley
Saginaw, Michigan

Beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather passed away Thursday, January 7, 2021 at Woodlands of Dewitt. Age 89 years. The son of the late John and Erma (Tyler) Cawley, Charles was born October 31, 1931 in Saginaw, Michigan. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Charles married Beverly A. Hoffman on February 9, 1952. She survives him. He was employed at the Saginaw News for 40 years and retired as production manager in 1991. There Mr. Cawley managed the transition from linotype to computerized production of the newspaper. Jim was of the Catholic faith. He was civic minded and enjoyed participating in social clubs. He was a member and past President of the Germania Town and Country Club, a member of the Saginaw Club and Saginaw Country Club. Mr. Cawley served as Chairman of the Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce in 1985. He enjoyed travel and cruised the world with Bev. He played billiards and card games, becoming a Bronze Life Master in bridge. He lived in Sun City West, Arizona, for a dozen years where he enjoyed playing in golf leagues. He cheered for the Michigan Wolverines, but more than anything he relished travelling the country and visiting his children and grandchildren and cheering them on.

Surviving besides his wife Beverly are three sons and their spouses, Kim and Nancy Cawley, McLean, Virginia; Kevin and Annette Cawley, DeWitt, Michigan; Kraig and Lisa Cawley, Wexford, Pennsylvania; seven grandchildren, Christopher (and Katelyn) , Max, Brett (and Molly), Kyle (and Kate), Kara, Jacob (and Christen) and Katie; four great-grandchildren (Grace, Beatrice, Claire and Sophie) ; a brother and sister-in-law, Thomas and Elsie Cawley, Gaylord; several nieces and nephews. Jim was preceded in death by two brothers, John (Pat) and Joseph Cawley.

Honoring Mr. Cawley’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider memorials to the Alzheimer’s association in your region or state.
