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!

Jim is survived by his daughter Nancy Eder and husband Mike of Fort Worth, TX, son Greg Vaughn and wife Brenda of Barboursville, VA; Grandchildren, Eric Eder, wife Rachel, Elizabeth Northern, husband Will, Nicole Vaughn and Alison Vaughn; Great grandchildren, Leopold James Eder, Veronica Marie Eder, George Robert Eder, Penelope Louise Northern, William Davis Northern II; Nieces, Dian Papay, Paula Phillips, Nephews, James, John and Joseph Cameron and Kenny and Bobby Ford.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Marie, son David, sisters Georgiana Vaughn and Margaret Cameron and nephew Larry Ford.  The family would like to thank the caring staff at St. Paul’s and Kindred Hospice during his time with them.   Memorial contributions may be made to the Good Shepherd Center, 10 N. Water St., Greenville, PA 16125.
