St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Fayetteville, Arkansas
James T. (J.T.) Shrigley died in Fayetteville, on January 8, 2020. Born in Little Rock, November 1, 1949, he grew up in Clarksville, the son of Dr. Guy and Diva Thompson Shrigley. He graduated from Hendrix College where he organized and built the campus FM radio station, KHDX. About half his working life was in broadcasting, which took him to several states for stints in management and on-air. During an assignment in Utica, New York, he met and married his soulmate, Wendy Hoyt Bostick. They relocated, in 1988, to Fayetteville for its good local educational system for their children and fine amenities for all, and to open what became Arcom Printing . He was pre-deceased by his wife, Wendy, daughter, Taylor, and his parents. He is survived by his son, Andrew Wentworth Shrigley, cousins Karen Anderson and Forrest Anderson, all of Fayetteville; Paula Zammiello, Columbia S.C., and Gary Kraus, Chico, Calif. In addition to his lifelong fascination with communications media, J.T. was very active at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, where he served as a vestry member, senior warden, and treasurer. At St. Paul’s, for several years he convened a Science and Religion reading group, sang bass in the St. Paul Choir, was a member of the McMichael Lecture Series committee, and many other church activities. He enjoyed enormously choir tours to Great Britain, France, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. He served for many years as a board member, board president, and interim executive director of Butterfield Trail Village. He was a long-time member and past president of Northside Fayetteville Rotary Club. Skiing in Colorado was a great joy for J.T., leading him early in his career to live and work in Aspen where he was general manager of KSPN. He especially cherished trips in recent years to the Rockies with his son. He looked forward to annual retreats on the White River with close friends from Hendrix days. He was very interested in electoral politics, and a principal disappointment he had near the end of his life was that he would not be able to vote in the 2020 general election. Services will be Monday, January 13th 5:00PM at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, followed by a reception in the parish hall. Memorials may be made to St. Paul’s Friends of Music, 224 N. East Avenue, Fayetteville, AR 72701.
