James S. Ferry, 51, Denver, former CHS football player, Army vet
James Stuart Ferry, 51, of Denver, died unexpectedly Sunday evening, July 6.
Born in Lansdale, Jim was a 1982 graduate of Cocalico High School. He played football all four years and would fondly reminisce about his multiple touchdowns during the 1981 Ephrata-Cocalico game.
Jim proudly served in US Army from 1982-1988. He had been employed by Case New Holland for 26 years as master welder. He often shared photos with close friends displaying the latest farm equipment project on which he’d been working and stating with a with a big grin; “I’m feeding the world.” Friends knew he loved what he was doing. He also served on Denver Borough Recreation Committee from 2007 through 2012.
He had a special charm to him. In any new face, he saw a chance to make a new friend. Not only that, but to capture the moment. He was selfless to strangers in need by quickly paying for a hot meal or warm place to spend the night.
He was a proud father who enjoyed every moment spent with his children &tstr; whether coaching soccer, teaching them to swim, fish or ride a bike. He was an avid hunter, fisherman and Eagles fan. His smile and kind heart will be missed.
He is survived by his wife: Lisa (Hoppman) Ferry; and children, Nicholas and Anja, both at home; his parents: Ann Stuart of West Lawn, and Ronald and Marlene Ferry of Clay; sister: Elice (wife of Albert Darrenkamp) of Lancaster; two brothers: Ronald Ferry (husband of Karen) of Phoenixville and David Ferry (husband of Pascha) of Williamsport; seven nieces; and four nephews.
The funeral service is set for Saturday, July 12, at 11 a.m., at Swamp Lutheran Church, 275 Swamp Bridge Road, Reinholds. Friends may call one hour prior to the service. Internment will take place in a private ceremony at a later date.
