“Dr. Jim” Thrailkill was the second son of J. Carl and Lida Lewis Thrailkill of Saluda, S.C. He was educated in the Saluda schools and graduated from Clemson College in 1948 where he was a member of the Pershing Rifles. He served in the Pacific with the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Turandot (AKA 47) from 1944-1946. He was graduated from The Medical University of South Carolina with a Doctor of Medicine degree in 1952 and served a one-year internship in General Practice at McLeod Infirmary in Florence, S.C. It was there that he met and married his beloved Betty Jane Turner who was on the nursing staff of Obstetrics. Together they assisted at the delivery of a physician’s wife from Cheraw, S.C. This doctor had been recalled to the Navy for service in Korea, and so Dr. Jim and Betty filled his shoes and took over his practice in Cheraw where they served for 47 years in Family Practice.

Dr. Jim loved the Lord, his Sunday school class, his family, medicine, quail hunting, golf, his wide circle of friends and medical colleagues, dinner parties, dancing, Stan Kenton jazz and Clemson football. To him the practice of medicine was an immense privilege and a high calling of service. He was a life-long learner in both his professional and in the liberal arts. As he often said, they helped him “read and appreciate the human document.” He was a lifelong member of The Methodist Church saying that Lida, his mother, had enrolled him in the church about thirty minutes after she knew he was on the way!


He served on the school board, the Cheraw Inter-Racial Council during the 1960’s, was a member of Kiwanis, and served in various capacities at Cheraw First United Methodist Church and the Chesterfield Country Hospital. He was instrumental in the formation of the Cheraw Rescue Squad. His debut as a local actor came in “The Man Who Came To Dinner” where he played the roll of a British actor and writer who was haughty and all knowing. He was serious about his medicine, had an affable personality, and was quite good as a Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies. His stand-up comedy routine was appreciated locally by those who already loved him! He was affectionately know to his patients as “Dr. Jim.


Surviving is his beloved wife Betty, his children, and grandchildren Daniel Thrailkill, Ellen Thrailkill, Anthony Thrailkill, Katherine Thrailkill, Mede-lene Tetsch, Iris Tetsch, and Jackson Thrailkill.
