James A. Conley, born November 6th , 1985, passed away suddenly on January 29th , 2021.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Dorothy E Beach; and his grandfather, Gerald E Wallbrown. He leaves behind his parents, David M. and Pamela J. Conley; grandmother, Barbara A.

Conley; fiancée, Erika Myers; godfather and names sake, James Harr; 8 aunts and uncles; 8 nieces and nephews; 11 cousins; and 2 great-nephews that he loved dearly.
James kept life-long friendships and was a very hard-working man and much appreciated; he will be missed by his employer, Personal Touch Painting. He loved his family, enjoyed singing and karaoke, nature, swimming, walking (especially with his 2 beloved dogs, Knoxville and Loko) and being ornery. He and his brothers were very competitive and they loved a good game of hard basketball. Wrestling was a constant in our household as well as broken items… He was once given a Community award for pulling a man to safety out of a burning house in Goodyear Heights. James shoveled walks for years for several seniors whom depended on him and will truly miss him. He had an infectious smile and a huge heart. He will be dearly missed.
