"Chris" James Christopher "Chris" Lallement, Jr., 64, of West Palm Beach, passed away March 12, 2011. Born in Jacksonville, FL January 31, 1947. He was the son of James Lallement and Onie Ruth Bryce. Family roots run deep within Duval and Nassau County history. He was a direct descendent of the Crichton, Plummer and Pritchard families that acquired Spanish Land Grants and settled in the Jacksonville area shortly after the Revolutionary War. His great-great-grandfather, Alexander Crichton, was one of the original settlers of Jacksonville and signer of the Florida Constitution. His great-grandfather, George William Bryce, pioneered and founded the town of Bryceville, FL. His grandfather, William Crichton Bryce, was one of the two Bryce brothers that stopped their train to rescue the women and children of Rosewood and carry them to safety. James retired from Winn-Dixie after 38 years. He was a great husband, father, grandfather and friend. He saw and felt God in the beauty of the outdoors. His favorite things were to go hunting and fishing. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. His love for the woods and the outdoors ran so deep that he chose to be remembered by this quote. "If you hear a Bob White in the woods, look around, it could be me." He is survived by his wife of 17 years, Joette Lallement; son, Jonathan (Heather) Lallement; daughter, Jennifer; step-daughter, Rachel; grandchildren, Katie, Samantha, Carlton, Nicole; great-grandchildren, Savannah, Scarlett. A Service will be held 5:00 PM (Today) at Del Lago Chapel, 131 S Lakeside Dr, Lake Worth. Friends may call from 4:00 PM until service time. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Bryceville Historic Church and Cemetery, Inc., PO Box 23, Bryceville, FL 32009.
