James "Jim" Cluse

January 8, 1965 — March 15, 2019

James “Jim” M. Cluse, Masury, Ohio, entered through the gates of Heaven at 8:10 PM, Friday, March 15, 2019, while at home and surrounded by the love of his family following a courageous fight with cancer. He was 54.

Jim was born January 8, 1965, in Sharon, Pennsylvania, a son to Charles M. and Patricia M. (Yoho) Cluse.

He graduated from Brookfield High School in 1982 and furthered his education at the New Castle School of Trades where he studied welding.

Jim was a veteran of the U.S. Army.

He fell in love with the former Peggy J. Kozarich, and they exchanged vows on Christmas Eve in 1988.

He had worked for Sharpsville Container, and was a member of the SixFourteen Church, Masury.

In his spare time, he enjoyed riding his motorcycle, building military models (especially tanks), and canoeing. In addition, he was an avid reader, and a lifelong Los Angeles Rams fan. However, spending time with his family and being with his grandkids is what he loved most.

Survivors include: his wife, Peggy; his daughter, Kelly Marshall (Anthony), Repton, Alabama; his grandchildren, Benjamin & Esther Marshall; his mother, Patricia M. Trump, Sharon; and his siblings, Ron Cluse (Pam), Sharon, and Tressa Cluse (Quentin Betts), Masury.

He was preceded in death by his father.

A time of gathering will be held in Jim's honor from 5 to 6 PM, Thursday, March 21, 2019, in the SixFourteen Church, 1386 Broadway Street, Masury, Ohio 44438. A memorial service will follow at 6 PM.
