James David Breyer

Born: 08/12/1952 Passed:

James David Breyer, 67, passed away February 27th, 2020 after an extended illness.

Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, he was preceded in death by his parents John H. and Virginia A. Breyer (Lester)

Jim served in the Army, and after, his travels took him to Connecticut and Florida, where he leaves behind lifelong friends.

Jim spent many years self employed as a painter, but his real passion was painting on canvas. Jim loved his music especially Bluegrass and Folk, it became part of who he was. He also loved ALL things nature, and the two happily collided in the many drawings and paintings he created that adorn their home. He was an avid gardener, and the birds appreciated what he hadn’t planted for them in his vegetable and flower gardens.

Jim was a huge “Indians “and “Browns” fan, never missing a game, always loyal to his “Ohio” teams

Last but not least, 28 years ago he graciously stepped up when his sister needed a lifesaving kidney. He will always be her “hero”, but he gave out of love and not to be a hero.

He leaves to grieve his passing his devoted and loving wife, Tammy S. (Brinson) Breyer; sons, Brandon Breyer, and Dylan Breyer;  brothers, Robert A. and Janice Breyer, John and Sandy Breyer, Gary Breyer, Marty Breyer;  sister, Susan K. (Breyer) and Rick Starcher; stepdaughters, Sarah LaSheir and Shana LaShier; many loving nephews and their spouses, great nephews, great nieces, 6 grandchildren, and special friends, Lee Rohan and Leslie Kramer.

In lieu of flowers, condolences may be sent to 143 Durling Dr., Apt.14, Wadsworth, Ohio 44281. Graveside services will be held March 16th at 2pm at Ohio Western Reserve Cemetery, 10175 Rawiga RD. Seville, Ohio.
