James Craft

James E. Craft, 71, of Bucyrus and formerly of Carey, died peacefully on Friday, March 4, 2022, in the care of his nephew in New Philadelphia.
On April 21, 1950, Jim was born in Tiffin, the third of five children of the late Grover and Elsie B. (Dick) Craft. He was raised in Carey, where he graduated from Carey High School.
For many years, Jim worked for the Whirlpool Corporation in Findlay. He also worked part time for several years as a police officer in Bairdstown and Jerry City.
One of Jim’s favorite pastimes was fishing. He also had the gift of gab, never meeting a stranger.
He will be missed by his sister, Susie Fisher of Carey; and many nephews.
Including his parents, Jim was preceded in death by three siblings, Linda Jones, Donald Craft and Maggie Barfell.
Services honoring Jim’s life will be observed privately by his family. Burial will be held at a later date at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Carey.
Arrangements are being handled by Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home of Carey.
