JAMES GILBERT OVERLY

James Gilbert Overly, 83, of Suffield, Ohio, was welcomed into his eternal home, Thursday, October 10, 2019. Born September 2, 1936 in Acme, Pennsylvania, he was the son of the late Harry and Lydia Yothers Overly.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his infant daughter, Linda Overly; sister, Gail Winemiller; and brothers, Floyd, Lester, and Harold Overly.

Gilbert’s memory will forever be in the hearts of those who survive; his wife of 64 years, Patricia Overly; daughters, Debra and Carla Overly; son, Keith Overly; grandchildren, Brooke, Brianna, Brynn, Jacob, Hayley; great-grandchildren, River, Rowan, Kelan; sister, Arlene Grazetti; and brother-in-law, Bob Newill, who was more like a brother and good friend.

A life long member of Hartville Church of God, Gilbert’s faith was inspiring. Because of his faith, he knew the importance of being loving and devoted to his family. He had a passion for quarter horses, farmed with a cowboy spirit, and enjoyed building and remodeling homes. He retired from Roadway Express, as a diesel mechanic. He was the owner and operator of Overly Pump Service. He met and married his true love, Patricia Louise Newill Overly and after the birth of their first child, Debra, they made Ohio their home.
