James "Jim" Spotts Obituary

James Sigmund “Jim” Spotts passed away on January 25, 2023, at home in Penn Run, PA, surrounded by loved ones, at the age of 86.

Born July 26, 1936, in Pittsburgh, PA, he was the son of the late Sigmund and Helen (Rejman) Spotts.

Jim will be sadly missed by his loving wife of nearly 55 years, Karen (Stockdale) Spotts of Penn Run, as well as children Beth (D.P.) McIntire of Raleigh, NC, Ginny (Hugh) Mahaney of Raleigh, NC, David (Chrissie) Spotts of Sugar Grove, PA, and Karen (Dennis) Jackson of Milton, FL, along with numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He is also survived by siblings Anne Biercewicz of Pittsburgh, PA, Karen Visconti of Moon Township, PA, Stanley (Kathy) Spotts of Gibsonia, PA, Joseph Spotts of Sarver, PA, and Richard (Linda) Spotts of Renfrew, PA, as well as brothers-in-law Edward (June) Stockdale of Walkersville, MD, and Randy (Cindy) Stockdale of Carterville, IL.

Jim and his wife owned a retail business for more than 50 years. His numerous friends will remember his friendly, outgoing, upbeat personality. He enjoyed telling jokes, talking on the phone with friends, eating at restaurants with family and friends, following the stock market, and watching Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates games. Jim also loved eating vegetables from his garden each summer, showing off his large zucchinis, and sharing the bounty with others.

He had a vast collection and extensive knowledge of old movies, and an incredibly amazing memory. Jim never knew a stranger, making conversation with everyone he met. He was extraordinarily generous, always willing to help someone out of a jam.

The family plans to hold a celebration of life in early February.  The McCabe~Roof Funeral Home, 565 Franklin St., Clymer is assisting the Spotts family.
