We were informed of Jim's passing by his wife Frankie.  His obituary follows.

James C. Pangle passed away on September 24, 2021, at the age of 76.  His battle with cancer and other illness showed his courage in facing life challenges with a smile and laughter.  Despite his pain, Jim enjoyed life and remained strong until the very end.

          Jim established and grew a flourishing janitorial business, The Church Sexton, with his wife, Frankie.  Together, they specialized in cleaning churches with an appreciation for helping others in little ways. He loved his family, fishing, and traveling.  He visited all 50 states and many countries.

          He is preceded in death by his parents Ida and Claude Pangle; sister Marian Jones of Jacksonville, Florida; brother Doug Johnston of Ontario, Canada; and sister Peggy Seco of Mecklenburg, North Carolina.
