Obituary

James E. Dahr, III, 67, passed away peacefully and surrounded by his loving family on Thursday July 27, 2017 at his home in Murrells Inlet. He was born on January 25, 1950 in Bridgeport, Connecticut to the late James Ervin and Irene Saunders Dahr, Sr.

Jim proudly served his country in the United States Navy from 1970, until 1976 where he was assigned to squadron, VFA-37 Ragin' Bulls. Following his honorable discharge and return to Connecticut, Jim went on to work for Sikorsky Aircraft from where he retired after more than 30 years of dedicated service.

Jim's greatest passion in life was his family. He would cook large family meals making his famous sauce and was an expert at preparing pineapple upside down cake. He was excited to learn new things about the Mafia. He could commonly be found reading a book or watching a movie about the Mob.
In his free time, he could be found on the beautiful local beaches, soaking up the sun. He was a devoted New York Yankees fan. Never known to slow down, he was also a member of the American Legion for 35 years.

Left to cherish Jim’s memory is his adoring wife, Stephanie Dahr of Murrells Inlet; their children, Janeen Dahr of Bridgeport, CT, James Ervin Dahr IV and his wife Erica of Milford, CT, Justin Scott Dahr and his wife Amanda of Port St. Lucie, FL, and Timothy James Dahr and his wife Emily of Virginia Beach, VA; eight amazing grandchildren and one beautiful great-granddaughter; as well as many close friends and neighbors.
