It was with great regret and sadness that I learned of the death of local, civic activist James H. Gilliam, Jr., a legend we'll never forget.
Mr. Gilliam, for whom the County's James H. Gilliam Building was named, was a tireless advocate for the community and equality for all, a war veteran and hero. He was a mentor and several people can contribute their professionalism and style back to this great man.
We shall miss him, and our prayers go out to his family.
