James Gearhart Obituary

James Allen Gearhart, 71, of Three Oaks, died, Tuesday, March 5, 2024.

His life began March 16, 1952, in LaPorte County, Indiana, the youngest of two boys born to Lloyd and Clora “Lora” Gearhart.

Jim was a very fun-loving father and grandfather. Not a conversation would pass without him telling a joke or funny story.  He was very encouraging, supportive, and saw the best in everyone.  His children will always remember that he was a hard worker and provider in building their homes and making sure that their needs were met. Throughout Jim’s many losses, his heart never turned bitter, and he had hope in his Savior.  He found peace and comfort visiting with his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed making birthdays special, always bringing joy and laughter. He imparted wisdom by sharing his skills and knowledge with his family.  Jim was always looking out for the safety of the ones he loved.  The skill that he taught, and his family will cherish, was his love for hunting morel mushrooms.

Jim will be greatly missed by his children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends. He is survived by one daughter, Katie (Nick) Warner of Kalamazoo; two sons, Chris (Adina) Gearhart of Buchanan, Jesse Gearhart of Three Oaks; six grandchildren, Jonathan, Caitlin, Haley, David, Maddison, Isla; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Harold Gearhart.

The family will observe a private remembrance.
