James Scott McDonough

Duck- James Scott McDonough, beloved father of Nate, Claire, Sarah, Denise, and the late Zachary James and beloved grandfather of Ayla and Arda, passed away quietly on Sunday March 25, 2018. He was 65.

James was a free spirit with a keen wit who, as the son of a Navy doctor, grew up in many different places and at last put down roots in Duck, NC.  Here he and his family had their most cherished times and will always remember annual family beach week.  James will always be remembered for his sense of humor and his love for his family.  James, we will always carry your memory in our hearts.
