Obituary for James Khai-Jin Lim

James Khai-Jin Lim, age 85, passed away peacefully on June 7, 2018, at BridgePoint Hospital in Washington DC. He was born March 11, 1933, in Jakarta, Indonesia, to Lim Seng Hooi and Injo Lioe Kho. He graduated from the University of Malaya in Singapore and continued his studies in the United States in 1959 on a USIS grant, earning a Masters and a PhD in Pharmacy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He married Lena Lim in 1962, in Singapore. Later, he was appointed Professor of Pharmaceutics at the University of West Virginia where he taught and was active in research for 32 years. After retirement in 1997, he moved to Great Falls, VA, where he was a member of St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church, and was also a member of the Knights of Columbus.

He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He enjoyed most the simple pleasures of music, gardening and travel. He always had ready, warm smile. He had a gentle humor, a disarming, friendly and sometimes surprising directness, and a sincere interest in whomever he met, regardless of their station in life.

He is survived by his wife, 3 children (Andrew Lim, Diana Lim, and Alvin Lim), 2 daughters-in-law (Adriana Lungu and Cecilia Zhang), and 7 grandchildren. Family and friends are welcome to a viewing at Money and King Funeral Home in Vienna on Monday, June 11, 6:00-8:00 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Catherine of Sienna Catholic Church in Great Falls, VA on Tuesday, June 12 at 10:00 a.m. Burial will follow at Fairfax Memorial Park in Fairfax, VA.
