James Arthur Vaughn, died on July 20, 2021, at St. Paul’s Senior Living Center, peacefully with his family at his side. Born on December 25, 1933 to George and Anna (Gizdic) Vaughn, and a 1951 graduate of Penn High School, Greenville, PA.

Jim and Marie were the former owners of the Greenville Area Ambulance Service and following their retirement, enjoyed traveling in their RV to all 50 states, and Canada, Mexico, Nova Scotia, Greenland, and Prince Edward Island. The license plate on the front of their RV stated if they knew grandchildren were going to be so much fun, they would have had them first!

    Nancy, Greg and families: Ron and I would like to express our deepest sympathy at Jim’s passing. What a wonderful man who had a HUGE impact on Ron’s life and gave us both an opportunity that we will always remember and cherish. So many fond memories and laughs that come to mind just thinking about him!!! We are unable to attend the funeral as we will be away on vacation. But we want to let you all know how much we cared and loved him. He is at peace and with the love of his life once again and also David. God bless you all and give you the comfort and peace as you deal with his loss through these next few weeks. God received another good angel up there in heaven!
