James Scara, 80, passed peacefully Friday, May 31, 2019, after a thankfully brief bout with cancer. A Chicago native he served in the Army National Guard until a car accident with his beautiful ’53 green and white Chevy broke his back. He recovered and married his high school sweetheart and had three children. A union millwright, he worked hard all his life. Upon retirement, he became an avid golfer with four holes in one and loved to play cards with his special lady friend Margaret Speaker. He competed in and won the Senior Games many times. Kind and generous, but a grumpy old bear, he was loved by all and will be missed.
He is survived by his children, James (Nelta) Scara, Tina (Ken) Walsh, Thomas Scara; four grandchildren, Eric Scara, Jim (Maggie) Scara, Tyler Walsh, Katie (Wesley) Hedden; four great grandchildren, Makenzie, Emilee, Gavin, and Noah. He is awaited in heaven by his granddaughter Erin and son Jacob.
