Claude "Jim" Christy

March 29, 1939 — January 1, 2022

Claude James “Jim” Christy was born in Morgan City, Louisiana, across the bayou from an island granted to his great-great grandfather for service in the War of 1812.  He attended Sacred Heart Catholic School and LSU, before becoming a Marine Corps officer and an agent and supervisor in Washington, DC, for the FBI.  Following three decades with The Bureau, Jim headed security for Hill Behan Lumber Co., completing his career in law enforcement as chief of police in his hometown of Morgan City. 

He was preceded in death by his father, Orrin Sr., his mother, Clara, brother, Orrin Jr., and sister, Nell.

He is survived by the love of his life, Gail, and adoring children Craig (spouse Julie), Jamie, Colleen, and Carey (spouse Scott), as well as nine grandchildren and a great-grandson who bears his name.  Jim was a faithful servant of the Lord, his family, and his country.  Semper Fidelis, Captain. You outshone the sun.
