James J. Trame
James J. Trame was born Feb. 3, 1939, in Dayton, OH. He passed away at Temple Hospital in Philadelphia, PA, Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019, at the age of 80 after a valiant struggle to achieve a lung transplant. Unfortunately, a donor lung didn't come soon enough. I have lost the love of my life and my hero.
Jim was a 1957 graduate of Chaminade High School in Dayton, and attended the University of Dayton in mechanical engineering. In 1979 he started his own business as Trame Mechanical, Inc., an HVAC mechanical contractor, retiring in 2014. He enjoyed the camaraderie of playing golf with family, friends and men's leagues in Florida and Tennessee. Jim was a member St. Francis of Assisi in Fairfield Glade.
He is survived by Jane Trame, his spouse of 58 years; four sons and daughters-in-law, Joseph and Terri, Thomas and Ana of Bellbrook, Steven and Leigh Ann and John and Michelle; a daughter and son-in-law, Karen and Doug Posey; 10 grandchildren, Tyler Trame, Dalton Trame, Taylor Trame, Jared Posey, Carter Posey, Tristen Trame, Myah Trame, Nathan Trame, Mallory Trame and Alex Trame; two brothers, Ben (Ruth) Trame and Robert (Marie) Trame; two sisters, Marilyn Good and Barbara Bradford; and sister-in-law, Dorothy Trame. Family was most important in life to Jim.
A visitation will be held on Friday, Oct. 18, from 4-7 p.m. at the Belton-Stroup Funeral Home, 422 E. Dayton-Yellow Springs Rd., Fairborn, OH. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Charles Borromeo Parish, 4500 Ackerman Blvd., Kettering, Father Tim Fahey, celebrant. Burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery.
