James H. Conboy passed away Sunday, June 13. He was born in 1921 in Odenton, MD. He was the son of James H. and Martha H. Conboy. He was preceded in death by his wife Eileen Clark Conboy, his partner Macie Stodghill, and his two brothers Samuel G. and David S. Conboy. He is survived by his niece, Tabitha Conboy Stanislaw, his Epiphany Church family and long-time caregiver Yollette Scott-Wilson.
In 1939, he began work at Fort George G. Meade. For almost four decades he worked in the maintenance section of the quartermaster corps retiring from the DIO Maintenance Division retiring in 1977 as its Chief. In the early 1940’s Jim played right fielder on Odenton’s semi-professional baseball team along with catcher Babe Phelps. He was a humble man and lived a life of loyalty and honesty. He dedicated himself to a life of service to his country, Epiphany Episcopal Church, and the Masonic Lodge Odenton #209. He attended Epiphany for 100 years serving in many leadership positions and is revered as its Senior Warden, Emeritus. The church’s parish hall and education building are named in his honor. He started his brotherhood with the Masons 76 years ago and served as Worshipful Master twice, and at death was a Master Mason.
His family invites Jim’s many friends to attend a Celebration of Life outdoor service on Sunday, June 20, 2021 at the Centennial Memorial Gardens, Epiphany Episcopal Church, 1419 Odenton Road, Odenton, MD starting with music at 10:00 and the service beginning at 10:30.

O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered:
Accept our prayers on behalf of your servant, James,
and grant him an entrance into the land of life and joy,
in the fellowship of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
May God bless us and keep us, now and always.
