COL James (Jim) Edward Enault (RET) USA

April 21, 1946 — July 13, 2021

On July 13, 2021, COL JAMES (JIM) EDWARD ENAULT (RET) USA, 75, of Madison, AL, passed away at Huntsville Hospital.  He was the dearly beloved husband of 43 years to Nancy Virginia (nee Puckett).  He is also survived by his daughters, Jennifer Aline Enault, and Jo Anna Enault, his granddaughter, Sophie Channing Thompson and grandson, Allen James Thompson; his brother Michael Enault and sisters Denise Roesing and Janet Feuerberg as well as nieces and nephews.  He was the eldest son of the late Clifford Evert Enault and the late Jane Ann Graham.  

Jim was born in Chicago, IL; spent his childhood on Mercer Island, WA and his teen and college years in New Orleans, LA.  His Army career moved him around the country frequently.  Jim was an Army pilot, a Vietnam veteran, attended the Army War College, served at the Pentagon, and specialized in defense acquisition programs and marketing and strategy during his Army career and through his career with Lockheed Martin.  He graduated from Louisiana State University (LSU) and was a dedicated supporter of the LSU college football team.  He achieved an MBA from Marymount University.  He had a great presence and was a natural born leader and public speaker.  

Jim and his wife, Nancy, have resided in Madison, AL, since 2010 enjoying their retired life, laughing, talking and being together. He also spent his time with their adored Golden Retriever pups and daily trips to the Mill Creek dog park in Madison, puttering around his yard, working in his garage and on projects for their home.  He volunteered and served as past Treasurer and current President of Adopt A Golden Birmingham, past Treasurer and President of the Walden HOA, Treasurer of the Mohawk (airplane) Association, and lead inspector for local precinct elections.  He was generous with his time, money and experience.  He was a devoted husband, kindly father and grandfather, a good friend and neighbor, and a man of honor and integrity.  A true officer and a gentleman. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Family and friends are invited to a celebration of his life at Legacy Chapel in Madison, AL on July 25th, 2021.  There will be a visitation at 1:30 pm and a memorial service at 3:00 pm.  Afterwards, friends and neighbors are also invited to come by the Walden Clubhouse at 208 Walden Glen Road, Madison, AL (35758) anytime between 4:30 pm and 7:00 pm for some refreshments with Jim's family.
