James E Fluegel, 67 of Longs SC passed away on Saturday, April 24th, 2021 at McLeod Seacoast Hospital in Little River, SC. Born on September 22, 1953 in Rhinebeck, NY, Jim was the son of the late George J and Ruth L Blagriff Fluegel.

Jim grew up in the Hudson Valley area and was employed by IBM East Fishkill as an engineering technician for over 25 years.

Jim loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing, hiking and was a proud member of the Adirondack 46er Club. Jim's latest adventure was golf. Jim enjoyed the game so much he decided to build a home on a course where he and his brother Jon played. Jim spent his days in the South Carolina sun, playing off the back nine, waving to his wife when the game was going well or giving a thumb down when it was not going as planned.
