Obituary of James Marshall Pinkerton

James Marshall Pinkerton, beloved son, brother, uncle, and friend passed away on Sunday, February 19, 2023, at the age of 33, after a tragic auto accident. He is survived by his parents, Bud and Barbara Pinkerton, and many more family members and friends.


James was the youngest child of Bud and Barbara and grew up in Salem attending West Salem High School and Chemekata Community College. 


He loved spending time with others. Family and friends were drawn to James; nieces and nephews loved their Uncle James.


James had a good heart and good intentions. He desired to be good and to be loved. If a buddy needed him, he would be there. As he made improvements to his life, he desired to help others make improvements to their own. His friendliness, easy-going personality will be greatly missed by all who knew him.


A Celebration of Life will be held on May 27th in Salem, Oregon.
