James M. Gardner, 68, passed away November 22, 2021. He was born in Westernport, Maryland to the late Arden and Geraldine (Donnelly) Gardner and moved to Ohio as a youth, where he was a Tallmadge High School graduate.
James was a tremendous artist and loved model cars. He was a fun-loving jokester who was always fun to be around, and he will be missed.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, William Cole and niece, Molly. He is survived by his siblings, Sharon Wakefield, Glen (Sue) Gardner and Toni Cole (Bryce); nieces and nephews, Donald, Brad, Mike, Eric, Samantha, Scott and Jean; and many great-nieces and great-nephews.
The family would like to give special thanks to the staff of Falls Village Skilled Nursing and Rehab for their many years of care as well as the staff of Western Reserve Hospital.
