James B. Priestley passed away December 17, 2021 at age 76.

Known as Jim or Gumby to his friends and family, he is survived by his wife Dawn, children Amy (Jaret) Knickerbocker, Dan (Alissa) Priestley, Curt (Kim) Young, and five grandchildren. Jim is also survived by his brother Walter (Helen) Priestley, sister Carole (Dennis) Rose, and brother-in-law Tom Robena. Jim was predeceased by his sister Judy Robena.

Jim lived his life to the fullest and had many interests, especially anything related to Harley-Davidson motorcycles and classic MG cars. He loved travel, nature and the outdoors, and was an active member of many clubs throughout his life. He was a Navy veteran. Jim will be greatly missed by many.

Contributions in Jim’s memory can be directed to a nature organization of your choice. A celebration of life will be held next summer.
