James David Wilder, Technical Sales Representative for Inland Coatings, passed away at his home in Eureka Springs Arkansas on September 30th. Jim was being treated for esophageal cancer. He was 74 years old.
Jim represented Inland Coatings for 17 years as a technical salesperson. He loved people and was genuinely interested in his customers. He formed close relationships with many roofing industry professionals through his attendance at trade shows, warranty inspections and sales trips. Jim enjoyed traveling and welcomed the opportunity to sample the food and culture throughout the US and Canada.
Working remotely from his home in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, Jim would liven up the day at Inland Coatings Adel office with frequent calls to discuss jobs and follow up on leads and warranties. He always had a tidbit of news to discuss, or as he liked to say, “Twist our tail” about. Jim was a pleasure to work with and he will be greatly missed by the entire Inland Coatings family.
