TROY - T. James Louden, 65 of Pointview Drive passed away suddenly on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at Samaritan Hospital with family by his side.
Born in Troy, he was the son of the late Thomas A. Louden and Nancy Mackey Louden. He leaves behind his beloved wife Ann Eagen Louden of Troy, his daughter Elizabeth (Joseph) Tamburello and his grandson Dean, who brought him endless amounts of joy.

Jim worked as a welder for Troy Built/Garden Way in Troy for 20 years. Thereafter, he worked at Callanan Industries, Owens Corning, and Ross Valve.

Jim enjoyed volunteering for local youth organizations, including the Troy Patriots Pop Warner and was a coach for his daughter Elizabeth’s CYO basketball team. He enjoyed traveling with his wife, spending time with his family, attending dozens of concerts by his favorite musician, Bruce Springsteen and watching the New York Yankees. In 2015, Jim was the recipient of a liver transplant which blessed him with 5 more invaluable years with his family and friends; including walking his daughter down the aisle, traveling to Maine with his wife and spending cherished time with his grandson Dean whom he adored.
