James “Jim” Charles Legge, Jr, 62, of Bellefontaine, passed away Monday, Jan. 11, 2021 at Kindred Hospital in Lima, Ohio.
He was born in Bellefontaine Feb. 2, 1958 to the late James and Helen (Hadding) Legge. He was preceded in death by a sister, Sheila Coyer.
On June 16, 1989 he married Deanna “Dee” Legge, and she survives along with his daughters Christina (Gary) Burt and Hattie Legge as well as stepson Doug Searfoss. He is also survived by his grandchildren Emma Legge, Zachary Burt, Bradley Burt, Maverick Hoffer, Allison Elliott, and Elizabeth Elliott and his great-grandchildren William (Teagin) Hayman and Troy Burt. His eldest sister, Phyllis Shaw also survives.
Jim was a member of the Moose and he enjoyed fishing and “junking.” He was always willing to extend a helping hand to someone in need and was a jokester at heart joking around with the family and the hospital staff even in his final days.
A celebration of life will be scheduled for a later date.
Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home & Cremation Center, Bellefontaine, is honored to serve the Legge family and encourages anyone to share a fond memory or message of condolence at www.edsfh.com.
