Wadsworth, OH

James Gary Metcalf, age 69, quietly sang the “Frog Song” on October 1, 2010.
He is survived by his wife Margie; daughters Andrea McBride (Mark), Jennifer Snowden; son, Greg Metcalf; grandchildren, Shannon, Katelyn, Colin and Tessa; and brother Fred (Madonna) Metcalf. He was preceded in death by parents, James and Della Metcalf; and sister, Jean Metcalf.
He enjoyed his final years of retirement working in the yard and garden, doing home improvements, leaving behind, among other things, a beautiful handcrafted gazebo in the back yard.
He would have liked to remain here a little longer, but he had a call back on a Dial Soap commercial on another plane of existence.
Family will receive friends Monday, October 4, from 6 to 8 PM at the Hilliard-Rospert Funeral Home 174 North Lyman Street; and 2-3 PM on Tuesday at Grace Lutheran Church 146 High Street. A celebration of his life will follow at 3:00 PM at Grace Lutheran Church, 146 High Street, Wadsworth, Ohio. All are welcome to attend the bereavement meal that will follow the service in the Fellowship Hall.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Save Ohio Strays in James’ name at PO Box 16, Wadsworth, OH 44282
