Mr. Rheudasil is a descendant of a Texas pioneer family who settled in the Sylvan, Texas area in 1853.

His early childhood was spent in Paris until his family relocated to the Shreveport, Louisiana area at the beginning of World War II, where his father worked in the defense effort. Jim grew up in the Church of Christ and attended Harding College in Searcy, Arkansas. He married Norma Jean Robinson of Shreveport, Louisiana. Jim and Jean had three children in Shreveport before relocating to Dallas, Texas where Jim spent most of his career as an architect. He also spent time living and working in Munich, Germany and Kaneohe, Hawaii. He retired in 1992.
He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Jean, of Atlanta, Georgia, and his three children, Dr. James Mark Rheudasil of Atlanta, Georgia, Paul Alan Rheudasil of Phoenix, Arizona, Leslie Elizabeth Rheudasil Sewell of Atlanta, Georgia, and five granddaughters.
