James A. Hurd, 75, passed away February 10, 2020 in Fletcher, NC. Jim lived in Munroe Falls, OH for 35 years before moving to the mountains last year with Renee, his wife of 36 years.
In addition to Renee, Jim leaves behind sons, William (Megan), Dr. Brent Myers (Dana); daughters, Lara Grimes (Kenny) and Mary Laney; nine grandchildren; close family members and friends; and his beloved dog, Bailey.
Jim worked at Zinc Engravers, Alsides, Inc. and later retired from the Hoover Company. Jim enjoyed gardening, beekeeping, his delicious crop of blueberries, traveling with Renee to find new diners, dives, wineries and coffee shops, attending summer concerts, picnics, completing nature hikes, playing cards and reading. Jim loved to travel and especially enjoyed celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary with Renee along the coast of California.
Per Jim’s wishes, cremation has taken place. There will be no formal services.
Jim’s wish for all his friends and family-get out there, find all the delicious diners and dives and have fun!
