James E. LaRochelle "Jim", 70, of Jeffersonville, IN, passed away on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, at his home with his loving wife, Sheila, by his side. Scott Funeral Home has been entrusted with his care, and a memorial service will be held at a later date.

James was born on September 23, 1949 to the late Alford and Estelle LaRochelle. Throughout his life, he dedicated his time to his country and all those in it. He served two tours in Vietnam, and then went on to serve at a Lieutenant for the Clark County Sheriff's Office. Most importantly though, Jim was the best husband, dad, and Pop that his family could ever ask for.

Along with his parents, he is preceded in death by his brothers, Robert and William LaRochelle.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Sheila LaRochelle; daughters, Dawn Klontz and Stephanie D'Alfonso (Robert); brother, Richard LaRochelle; nine grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
