James Kitzmiller

James Arthur Kitzmiller Jr. died suddenly at his home in Yellow Springs on Friday, Oct. 2. He was 54.

James was born Sept. 20, 1955, in Sumter, S.C. He attended several universities in the Dayton area and then farmed for many years before becoming a stay-at-home dad and gourmet cook. (He cooked much better than he cleaned.)

He is preceded in death by his father, James Sr., and his brother John.

He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Johnetta (Lakes) and son Jamie of Yellow Springs; mother Elizabeth and sister Terry of Enon; brother Arthur and his wife Colleen of Milford, Del.; brother Andy and his wife Joy of Cedarville; and a host of nieces and nephews, all of whom he loved.

James was buried on Monday, Oct. 5, at the Clifton Cemetery. The family plans to hold a memorial service in late December, at a date to be announced.
