James/ Jay Follet is the man who dies in the novel. He is described as stable and reliable..... a favorite of his mother and his great-grandmother. Walter Starr, a family friend, is near tears as he tries to express to Jay's children his great admiration for Jay, who worked himself up from humble roots.
