James Edward Brosious, 64, of Sunbury, passed away Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2017, at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville from respiratory complications.
He was born in Sunbury on April 18, 1953, the son of the late Clyde Brosious Sr. and late Josephine (Long) Brosious.
The youngest of seven siblings, Jimmy was a very peaceful and light spoken man with a sentimental heart. Penn State and Steelers football was one of his passions. Over the past few years his Saturday and Sunday afternoons consisted of quality time spent with his nephew Steve enjoying the game of the day. When hunting season came, he was in heaven in the woods hunting for that trophy buck. Jim also enjoyed the music of Elvis Presley and playing cards with his family.
Today Jimmy is not struggling to breathe and is at peace with family exactly where he wanted to be. Without a doubt, right beside his mother holding her hand. A son, a brother, an uncle, a father, a grandfather and great-grandfather and let's not forget a friend. Jim was a good man and will always be remembered that way.
Preceding James in death in addition to his parents are children, Nina and Tommy; and siblings, Frank, Clyde Jr., Bruce, Bill, June and John.
James is survived by a son, James E. Brosious II, of Sunbury; a daughter, Jayme Wagner and husband Benjamin Wagner, of Northumberland; seven grandchildren, Kayla Strouse, Jared Hewlett, Johnna Strouse, Makenna Wagner, Corey Wagner, Jada Brosious and Alyssa Brosious; and two great-grandchildren, Ryleigh Hewlett and Asher Hewlett. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews that he was very close to.
A viewing will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday at the Jerre Wirt Blank Funeral Home, 395 State St., Sunbury, followed by the funeral service at 11 a.m.
Interment will be in the Pomfret Manor Cemetery, Sunbury.
In lieu of flowers friends are asked to make donations to the charity of their choice.
