James R. Marsillett, Jr., 45 and a resident of Warsaw, passed away unexpectedly at 9:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2019, in his home near Leesburg.
He was born in Warsaw at Murphy Medical Center on July 15th, 1974. He was the son of James R. Marsillett Sr. and Mary A. (Bean) Marsillett. He was a 1993 graduate of Triton High School and went on to work at both Biomet and Zimmer. He was currently the plant manager of J & B Pallet Company of Warsaw where he worked alongside his family.
Family was very important to Mr. Marsillett; he was friendly to anyone he met but family held a special place in his life. He was kindhearted and outgoing, rarely knowing a stranger. He was also fiercely loyal and had a remarkable sense of humor. He was a diehard Colts Football fan and enjoyed winding down with Xbox games. He liked to try his luck at Blue Chip along with playing bingo every Thursday at the North Webster American Legion Post #253. As family was everything to him, a friendly game of cards with his family meant so much more – a Sunday ritual which he cherished.
Those left brokenhearted by his passing include his fiancée, Ashley Deeds of Warsaw; son, Jacob White of Peru; daughters, Kayla (Jacob Ervin) Marsillett of North Webster and Felicia (Guy Marlatt) Marsillett of South Whitley; son, Michael Marsillett of Pierceton; three grandchildren: Addyson, Mason and Bennett – all at home with their parents; step-daughter: Caytlin Garman of North Webster; step-sons: Kaydin Manges and Izack Manges – both at home; parents: James Marsillett, Sr. and Mary A. Marsillett of Warsaw; brother, Terry J. (Danielle) Marsillett of Warsaw and sister, Christy (Scott Huffer) Scott of Syracuse. He was preceded in death by both sets of grandparents.
Services have been planned with Titus Funeral Home, 2000 E. Sheridan Street, Warsaw where visitation will take place on Sunday, Nov. 3, noon until 4 p.m. On Monday at 11 a.m., Dr. Ron Manahan will officiate James Marsillett’s service with burial following in Warsaw’s Oakwood Cemetery.
