In Memory of James Jeffery

We recently learned that former Akron Railroad Club member James Jeffery died on Aug. 26.

Mr. Jeffrey, 82, was a lifelong resident of Cuyahoga Falls and worked at Stow-based MACTC for 44 years before retiring.

He joined the ARRC on Jan. 27, 2012. During meetings he would typically sit in the front row toward the left side.

ARRC membership rosters during his time in the club misspelled his name as “Jeffries,” an error that apparently was never corrected.

The obituary for Mr. Jeffery published in the Akron Beacon Journal, said he is survived by his wife, Patricia; daughters Kimberly Jeffery and Lisa (Allen) Emmendorfer; and six grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He was buried in Oakwood Cemetery. Memorials were to be made to Cuyahoga Falls Firefighter Memorial Foundation or to the Northwest Avenue Church of Christ in Tallmadge.
