James S. Raschke

ALBION, Pa. — James Stephen Raschke, age 32, of Albion, Pa., went to be with the Lord on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013, in UPMC Hamot, Erie, Pa.

He was born in Conneaut, Ohio, to Stephen P. Raschke and the late Janice Parknow on Feb. 5, 1981. He was a graduate of Northwestern Sr. High School.

He was employed by Lehmann’s Farms as a butcher. He enjoyed spending time with his son, friends and family and he enjoyed hunting, fishing, and being one with nature. He spent much of his time at the family farm and tinkering around the house. James loved his family more than anything in the world and was a reliable friend to many.

He is survived by his father of Conneaut, Ohio; a son, James Robert Raschke of Lake City; a sister, Jessica Dell of Jefferson, Ohio; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

James was preceded in death by his mother and paternal and maternal grandparents.

My Final Gift: It is now time for me to move on; Into the dusk, but also the dawn. I will remain as the morning comes; As I have left behind a gift for someone. So another may walk, may talk, may see; Where something in their life was locked, I offered them a key. I am a donor, giving to someone in need, My final gift, my final deed.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 28th, on the family farm at 10510 Barney Road, Albion, Pa. 16401.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Jessica Dell in care of White-Cool Funeral Home, 1405 Main St., Conneautville, Pa. 16406 for the purpose of establishing a trust for his son, James Robert.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to Hamot Medical Center, CORE, and all their staff for giving Jimmy the best care and helping him to live on through other people.

Arrangements have been entrusted to WHITE-COOL FUNERAL HOME, Gina M. McCauley, Funeral Director, 1405 Main St., Conneautville. Condolences may be extended to the family at www.white-coolfuneralhome.org and starbeacon.com.
