Jamie Alan Killen, 75, of Nags Head, NC, died Sunday, December 25, 2022 at his home. Born in Norton, VA on October 14, 1947, he was the son of the late Elizabeth and Olaf Killen. A member of Nags Head Church, Jamie often volunteered at various activities and duties around the church. He loved Beach Music, fishing, classic cars, cookouts, a good joke, shag dancing, reading, and rooting for the Dodgers, Nationals, and Redskins. He especially enjoyed the music of Bill Deal & Ammon Tharp with the Rhondels, and the Band of Oz (or any music he could shag to). Most importantly he valued spending time with his family and grandkids, and loved life on the Outer Banks.
He grew up in Norfolk, graduating from Norview High School in 1966. He attended Old Dominion University where he was a member of Sigma Nu fraternity.
Jamie (JAK #1) is survived by his wife Patricia; sons Jeffrey (JAK #3) and Joseph (JAK #4)[Malerie]; grandchildren Ala, Charlotte and Jacob (JAK #7); brother Joseph (JAK #2)[Rebecca] and nephews Jasen (JAK #5) and Jeremy (JAK #6); Aunt Charlotte Browder, Aunt Shelby Leftwich and Uncle Kerry [Marlene] Killen; sisters-in-law Jo Anne York, Beverly Harrison and Janice [Bill] McLaughlin, nephew Brandon Harrison, and niece Shannon [Dan] Weinstein; his special extended families Steve [Jean] Baker, Debbie Boorman, and Marieta, Michael and Jennifer Bajit; and his beloved “Ollie the Collie”.
