James Thomas Blasingame, a former FBI agent who worked in numerous offices across the country and investigated fraud, a mass murder and the Ku Klux Klan, died Tuesday, the Athens Banner-Herald reports.

He was 76.

Blasingame joined the FBI in 1954 and served as a special agent in Buffalo, N.Y., Newark, N.J., Washington D.C., Monterey Calif. and New York City, according to the Banner-Herald.

From investigating groups like the KKK and neo-Nazis to working on the 1983 shootout with anti-tax protester Gordon Kahl, Blasingame had a good career, his family told the Banner-Herald.

“My brother said that the word that described Jim was ‘faithfulness’,” his wife Alma Blasingame said. “He was faithful to his family, faithful to his relatives and to his employers.”
