James A. Harrison 64, of Sugarcreek, is now at peace following a courageous battle with an unfair opponent, cholangiocarcinoma. He returned to his heavenly home on Tuesday, November 5, 2019, while surrounded by his beloved family.
Born May 17, 1955 in Dover, Jim was the son of the late Gene and Edith (Hamilton) Harrison. Jim was a 1973 graduate of Garaway High School and followed in his father’s footsteps in the auto care industry. He and his wife of 42 years, Nancy, opened Harrison Auto Parts in Sugarcreek in 1983, which they still own and operate today. In addition to the Napa store, Jim joined the Sugarcreek Fire & Rescue Department in 1972, rising to Chief in 1990. He also volunteered as an EMT with Nancy when Swiss Valley EMS was established in 1978.
