James W. Gierhart
59, of Indianapolis, entered eternal life after a brief illness, June 9, 2013. He was born February 8, 1954, to Rev. Bernard Willis and Dorothy Cornett Gierhart.
James received his Bachelor's Degree from the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University, where he was a member of Theta Xi Fraternity. He received his Master's Degree in Business from Ball State University, and was employed with C. B. Lunsford Real Estate, Muncie, IN. James was also a self-employed realtor, owning and managing multi-family dwellings. He married Michelle Gray, October 12, 2002, and was a member of East 91st Street Christian Church.
James was an avid Indiana University fan, but also enjoyed attending/watching all sporting events.
