James E. “Jim” BerridgeFlagJames E. “Jim” Berridge, 74 of Prospect, died peacefully Thursday February 8, 2024 at Walnut Crossing in Marysville. Jim had battled complications from having a stroke 17 years ago.

He was born September 3, 1949 in Kenton to the late Carl E. and Janis (Shoup) Berridge.

Jim was a 1967 graduate of Elgin High School. He had served our country in the United States Army. Jim was retired from the Whirlpool Corp. having worked there for over 40 yrs.

Even though Jim had health issues that limited his ability to do many things that he used to, he persevered on. He enjoyed walking around Prospect and the park. His family is very grateful for all who watched out for Jim, additionally, they are very grateful for the staff at Walnut Crossing who lovingly cared for him. Jim loved to fish, the U.P. was a favorite spot. He also loved sports, he cheered for his “Indians”, Browns and the Buckeyes. Jim really loved watching his son Pug play fastpitch softball and traveled all over rooting him on. When he became a Grandpa, he cherished the time he could spend with his grandkids, they were so special to him.

Jim will be remembered for that wonderful smile and big heart.

Deb, Pug and family, Mike and I were so sorry to hear of Jim's passing.  His laughter was contagious and his smile could light up a place. Someone told me once, "The life of one, who touches another, lives on forever".  I know Jim touched many lives and I am one of them. Praying for you and your family! Love you!

I remember Jim before he got sick, he was caring to Joan, she knew she could count on him for what ever she needed. His wife Deb stayed by him every step of the way, which wasn't always a easy task, she is someone who took her wedding vows seriously. I admire Deb and Joan. RIP Jim

Hello, I am sending my condolences to the whole family. I am your mother's first cousin [Janis]. I taught Jimmy and Rob both in Richwood kindergarten. They were ornery, but so cute!! I am the same age as Dana was. My dad and Uncle Clarence were brothers. We met Joan at the restaurant a few months ago. I am happy to learn where you all live, etc. May God give you His peace in this sad time. Our family all attend the Richwood Church of Christ, where all your aunts and uncles attended. We invite you to join us anytime.

Deb,Pug and family. We're sorry to hear of your loss. We will always remember his dedication to the boys during the years he coached. His excitement, frustration and animation during those games was infectious. A great guy to those he met along the way. He was a part of so many people's lives.
