It is with deep regret and sadness to say that James Tay Nottage passed away peacefully in Eugene, Oregon of cancer. Jim was a Fifth Generation Kama’aina. Jim was born in North Kona and grew up in Kaneohe.

He graduated from Punahou High School in 1965. Jim was a Captain in the Hawaii Air National Guard, flying with the 199th Fighter Squadron.

For many years Jim was an insurance agent for First Insurance Company of Hawaii. Jim served a term as President of the Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce. He later started his own agency, Insurance Resources, Inc., in Kona.

After retiring from insurance Jim moved to Oregon where he started Nottage Cottage Construction. He was an avid fisherman, surfer, hunter and all round sportsman. He was a pilot and award winning woodworker. Later in life he became a keen horseman both in the saddle and driving road horses winning many championships across the mainland.

Jim is survived by his wife Sally Gray-Nottage, daughter Dr. Sage Saxton, son Jacob Nottage, 4 grandchildren. He is also survived by his siblings David G. Nottage Jr., Lolly Davis, Sam Nottage. With regret, sister “Muffy” Miller recently just passed after Jim. A later service is planned at Oahu with date to be announced.
