James Fordyce Alenson




James loved summers. James spent a month every summer from age 8 to 14 at Camp Mi-Te-Na. He liked the activities, the kids, and being outdoors. James had been accepted as a Counselor-in-Training for Summer 2007.

Summer also meant time spent at his Grandparents house on Lake Winnisquam with his brother, sister, and cousins. James was fearless when it came to tubing.

James worked for the Natick Organic Farm in the late summer through the fall. He split wood, took care of the animals and helped to build a storage facility. James took great pleasure in working outside at the Farm and never failed to volunteer to work with his grandfather on his latest backyard project.

James was 15 years old when his life was taken in January of 2007 at his High School in Sudbury MA. James is both an innocent and random victim of a violent and horrific act. The murderer was convicted and sentenced to life without parole in April 2010.

James had many wonderful qualities. We are most proud of how considerate he was of everyone he met. We encourage those who visit this website to perform an act of kindness in a loved one’s memory.
