McClincy, James - Runville  
James (Jim) McClincy November 5, 1927 December 25, 2014 Jim McClincy, of Runville, arrived to his heavenly home on Christmas, Dec. 25, 2014, surrounded by his family. Jim was born Nov. 5, 1927, son to James H. and Mary, who both preceded him in death. On his birthday, Nov. 5, 1948, he married Gerda "Mickey" McClincy who preceded him in death July 29, 2014. Reunited in Heaven with the love of his life, Jim's family is sure their reunion is a beautiful and glorious sight to behold. Surviving are son, James Carl (Tanya), of Sunbury; two daughters, Karin Garner and Carol (Curt) Leitzell, of Runville; one granddaughter, Cheanye McClincy, of Sunbury; two grandsons, Joshua McClincy, of Sunbury, and Jeremy (Lindsey) Garner, of Snow Shoe; two step-grandsons, Matthew Leitzell, of Pleasant Gap, and Eric Leitzell, of San Diego, CA; one great-grandson, Ethan McClincy, of Sunbury, and three step-great-grandchildren, Noah, Madison, and Gavin, of Snow Shoe; brothers Robert, of Pennsville, NJ, Ralph (Lethia), of rural Bellefonte, and Linn (Loretta), of Milesburg; and sister Mary Lou Moser, of Bellefonte. Along with his parents, Jim was preceded in death by a son, Walter; son-in-law, Terry Garner; brothers, George and Charles; and sisters, Katherine, Shirley and Sharon. Jim served in the United States Army and Army Reserves. Following his military service, Jim began working at Titan Metal in Bellefonte (Cerro Metal Products) until his retirement. After retirement, he helped his neighbor, Sam, delivering Avon orders across Pennsylvania. He enjoyed meeting people and always took the opportunity to share his faith and spread the word of God. A father is the biggest source of strength for a child. The innocent eyes of a child perceive father as the all-powerful, most knowledgeable, truly affectionate, and the most important person in the family. For daughters, fathers are the first men they adore and love, while for sons, a father is the strongest person they know and someone they aspire to emulate. Even for the grownups, fathers are those to whom we look for the most experienced and honest advice that is always in the best of our interest. For this great figure in our life that we know as father - it becomes our utmost duty to pay our humblest tribute. Jim served for many years as Superintendent and Sunday School Teacher at Runville United Methodist Church. He served as Treasurer for many years at the Milesburg Assembly of God. Together, Jim and Gerda were charter members in the building and organization of Maranatha Assembly of God Church outside of Pleasant Gap where he continued in his service to the Lord by building a cross, pulpit and altars for the church and donating many items and manpower hours to the church. Jim and his wife were the caretakers for the Runville Community Center for many years where he would spend hours cleaning up the yard before and after events that were held, always making sure to clear any debris so to keep the yard pristine. Jim was a role model for many through his example of loving and living in the Christian faith and his personal relationship with the Lord. He was a Bible scholar and could quote scriptures and provide advice to anyone who would listen. He could be found every day, along with his wife, studying the word of God. He took several trips to the Holy Land and when he returned he would tell about the overwhelming feeling of walking where Jesus walked, seeing where He performed miracles, and how the spirit of the Lord was with him. Jim had many documented encounters with angels and would share the details with those who would listen. Anyone who knew him could tell he was truly a gifted and blessed man who was surrounded by angels. Jim enjoyed working outdoors, collecting rocks of all shapes and sizes from all over the world, playing Scrabble, and putting puzzles together. He was a collector of a variety of things no one else would think was useful, growing up with a true understanding of the value of the simple things in life. If you were ever looking for something unusual or hard to find, chances are if you stopped by his house, Jim had just what you were searching for and he always knew exactly where it was. You would see him out in the yard, picking up walnuts or chestnuts, gathering stones, working the garden, and just tinkering around with whatever tools might need tinkering with. Jim's children would like to express their appreciation to friends and family who visited with him, especially his long-time family friend John Bonfatto who shared his passion and love for the Lord and would often bring Jim reading materials and share stories. We would like to thank the staff at Eagle Valley Personal Care Home, Medi Home Health & Hospice, and a deep heartfelt thank you to his dearest friends who are a huge part of our family, Rev. Kenneth and Marlene Martin, of Hermitage, who faithfully sent cards and wrote to Jim every week. At Jim's request, all services will be private at the convenience of his family. Jim will be laid to rest in Advent Cemetery beside his wife and son, "Singing in Glory", where military honors will be accorded. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of The Dean K. Wetzler Funeral Home, 201 Spring St., Milesburg, PA. Memorial contributions can be made to the Walter L. McClincy Scholarship Fund c/o John and Mary Ann Wetzler, 1026 Airport Rd., Bellefonte, PA 16823; Centre Crest Auxiliary Comfort and Love Program, c/o Janie Burns, 502 E. Howard St., Bellefonte, PA 16823; or Hospice Care Charity Inc. 341 N. Science Park Rd., State College, PA 16803. "The loss of a father is a heavy burden to bear. He's a source of quiet strength that is so missed when he's not there. Take comfort knowing he's in Heaven, and looking down at you. He'll be there through the coming years, watching over and guiding you. He's your very own guardian angel, and he'll be with you to the end; when you meet again in Heaven, and your broken heart will finally mend." ~ Unknown
