— James Alan Methvin
James Alan Methvin, 65, passed away February 10, 2013 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He was the son of the late Nolan Glover and Jimmie Sue Methvin of Chickasha, Oklahoma. After spending the majority of his life in Oklahoma, he moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico where he has lived nearly the last two decades. He was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his brother Richard Methvin of Lawton, Oklahoma, sister Susan Methvin of Edmond, Oklahoma, daughter Lexi and husband Ray McNutt of Aspen, Colorado, son Corbin and wife Allison Methvin of Dallas, Texas, and grandchildren Lila and Nolan Methvin of Dallas. He enjoyed amateur photography and found inspiration hiking in the Santa Fe area. He had an affinity for classical music and treasured the solitude of long drives across the New Mexico landscape. He always found comfort in reading, especially the works of English novelist and poet Thomas Hardy. In death he has found a peace he deserved in life. He will be placed to rest next to his parents in Chickasha where a private memorial service will be held on April 1, 2013. Arrangements are under the direction of Riverside Funeral Home, New Mexico and McRay Funeral Home, Chickasha. To view online, leave condolences or sign the guestbook go to www.riversidefunerals.com.
