Full Text: Dr. James "Jim" Kermit Sexton, 78, of Asheville, died May 30 at John F. Keever Solace Center. A native of Elkhorn City, KY, he was son of the late Kermit and Ruby Owens Sexton.

Always the advocate for education, Jim was a graduate of the University of Kentucky and Bowman Gray School of Medicine at Wake Forest University.

He began his medical career in Dunbar, WV, joining the family practice of Joseph A. Smith, MD. Dr. Sexton later served his residency in radiology at Duke University, before joining the staff of Charleston Area Medical Center where he served a term as Chief of Staff. As an Interventional Radiologist, Dr. Sexton was a partner in Associated Radiologists, Inc. of Charleston, WV.

A wonderful husband, father and patriot, Jim loved his family and his country. For 26 years he was a proud member of the West Virginia Air National Guard, where he loved and enjoyed the camaraderie of the 130th Tactical Airlift Group. Following retirement, the Sextons moved to Asheville, NC in late 1997 so that they could be centrally located to family.
