James Vincent Calhoun, 58, Warsaw, passed away at home at 10 a.m. Tuesday, June 15, 2021. His passing was unexpected and leaves his family broken hearted.
Born Aug. 10, 1962, in Columbia City, “Jim,” as most knew him, was born to Betty Lewis. He was loved and adopted by his parents, Woodrow and Anna Ray (Blair) Calhoun. Jim spent his formative years in the Pierceton area, graduating from Whitko High School with the class of 1981.
After high school, he went on to serve in the United States Navy. Jim was a hard worker and a dedicated employee, spending more than twenty-seven years with Akzo Nobel. He retired in April of this year. Jim was fun-loving and liked to laugh. He enjoyed traveling with his wife and loved spending time with her and their friends. He liked woodworking, fishing and gardening. He also enjoyed country music and live music of all kinds. He was especially excited to have seen REO Speedwagon and Sugarland in concert.
On June 24, 2002, Jim was united in marriage to Katrina (Koldyke) Zolman. They were planning to celebrate their 19th anniversary together before his Tuesday morning passing.
Katrina Calhoun survives in Warsaw. Also surviving are his four siblings: Cindy Lewis, Sidney; Theresa Wilson, Warsaw; and Deb (Richard) Kemper, North Webster; Mark (Marie) Lewis, Tennessee; several nieces and nephews and several brothers and sisters-in-law.
He was preceded in passing by his parents; two sisters: Barbara Stewart and Martha Prater and a stepson, Robert Lee Zolman.
