James "Jimbo" Gilley has passed from this world into the next on Jan. 31, 2017. No longer having to work, he is now able to fish everyday, play pool, or just hang out with the guys having a beer and listening to music.
He was born June 7, 1957, to Nancy (Seybert) and James Gilley. As a teenager he met the woman who would eventually become his wife/partner-in-crime, Linda. They were married for 37 fun-filled years. Together they raised three children along with half of the neighborhood. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, camping, fishing, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
He worked at Tetrasolv for 18 years as a welder. He was a great guy who always found the good in people and never met a stranger. He has left an impact on everyone he has come into contact with and will be greatly missed by all.
Jimbo was preceded in death by his son, Aaron Wagers; father, James Gilley; nephew, Danny Scott; and both maternal and paternal grandparents.
He has left behind his sweetheart, Linda; daughter, Beth (Chris) Kalley; son Jeremy (Lori) Wagers; mother, Nancy (Bill) Seybert; sisters, Sue Scott and Jane (Paul) Marano; and his brother, Richard (Julie) Gilley. He was also survived by seven grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; several nieces, nephews, cousins; and a ton of close friends.
Visitation will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday at Loose Funeral Homes and Crematory, Anderson.
A celebration of Jimbo's life will take place after the visitation from 6:30 to 8:30 at the Redbud Club House off of 38th Street in Anderson.
Cremation will take place.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the family to offset expenses through the funeral home.
The family asks that everyone dress casual per Jimbo's request.
