April 30, 1944 - April 18, 2021
James William Siders, Sr., age 76, of Dublin passed away unexpectedly Sunday, April 18, 2021. Born April 30, 1944 in Mt. Vernon, OH to the late Walter and Edna Siders, James “Jim” was a 1961 graduate of Eastmoor High School and a 1965 graduate of Capital University. After graduating, Jim worked for General Motors for 35 years before retiring in 2000. Jim talked often about what a fulfilling life he had lived. He loved to golf, listen to music, and travel. Some of his favorite destinations were Palm Springs, CA and Hilton Head, SC. More than anything else, Jim absolutely adored his family; his favorite thing to do was to spend time with his wife, children and grandchildren. Jim made it a priority to attend any and all activities his grandchildren participated in and he was so very proud of them. He will forever be missed by his loving wife of 45 years, Barbara Siders; children, James Jr. (Bobbi) Siders, Melissa (Kevin) McCauley, Rhiannon (James) Greene, Derek (Heather) Siders; grandchildren Abigail and Harrison Siders, Keegan McCauley, Ian Greene, Edison and Xavier Siders, and godson Thomas McKitrick (parents Jack (Betsy) McKitrick and brother William), and sister Judy (Emil) Ontko. Jim recently wrote this in a journal to his grandchildren in response to the question “What mistakes have you made and what would you have done differently?” To quote my mother, “Everything always works out for the best.” When I think about where I am in my life, I would totally agree. I have great children and grandchildren with whom I love to spend time and enjoy their activities. I have a wonderful wife of 45 years who I love and we enjoy doing things together. I am not rich, but we can afford to do everything we want. So, whatever mistakes I’ve made have “worked out for the best.” I think those words from my mother were always in the background and gave me the positive attitude to overcome my mistakes. We think he summed things up pretty well and we couldn’t agree more. We know he is smiling down on us with that smile he always wore. He will forever be held in our hearts. The family will receive guests on Friday, April 23rd from 4:00pm to 7:00pm at Rutherford Funeral Home at Powell in Powell, OH. There will also be a private service for the family on Saturday, April 24th.
