July 21, 1955 ~ August 31, 2021 (age 66)


James "Jim" Edwin Kreuter, age 66, passed away on August 31, 2021 with his wife of 46 years and children at his side after a battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Linda Trunzo-Kreuter, daughter Jenn (Chris) McKenna, son Jim (Natasha) Kreuter, granddaughter Kendall Kreuter, spoiled rotten doberman pinscher Colt, and brother Harry (Diane) Kreuter. Mother-in-law Laura Trunzo, brother-in-law Chuck (Karen) Trunzo, sister-in-law Susie (Joe) Gregorini, and brother-in-law Russ (Dawn) Trunzo, as well as many dear cousins, nieces, nephews and many special friends.

Jim was born on July 21, 1955 in North Charleroi, PA to parents Harry James and MaryAnn Kreuter. He graduated from Monessen High School Class of 1973. His extensive work history began with Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel- Allenport Plant, Rockwell International- Columbus, Ohio, Martin Marrietta- Baltimore, MD, Buckeye Steel- Columbus, Ohio, Metal Container Corporation Anheuser Busch Packing Group- Columbus, Ohio, McDonnell Douglas Aircraft-Columbus, Ohio, Techneglas-Columbus, Ohio, VT Griffin Services- Ohio Army Reserve Bases,  and finished his career at Limited Brands-Columbus, Ohio in March, 2018.   

Jim was an avid deer hunter that loved to spend time in the woods. When it was not hunting season, he was a homebody and prankster that could still easily fool his wife of 46 years. 

A very private gathering will be held to celebrate his wonderful life. We would like to thank Shaw-Davis Funeral Homes for providing excellent services and all of the exceptional doctors, nurses and staff at Mt. Carmel St. Ann's for assisting with his care.
