  • James Daniel Rymer, 57, of Ravenswood, WV, passed away on Tuesday, April 10, 2012, at CAMC Memorial Hospital in Charleston after an extended illness.
    Jim was born on October 28, 1954, in Ripley, WV, the youngest son of the late Roger C. and Eleanor L. Rymer.  Jim was a 1973 graduate of Ravenswood High School where he excelled in track and earned the name “Rabbit Rymer”.  He later attended Shepherd College.  Jim worked for the State of West Virginia in various departments, and DOH District 3 for 30 years.  He also worked part time at Jacks Sport Center.
    A very vocal and avid WVU fan, Jim and his many friends traveled all over the country to show support for his beloved Mountaineers.  The stories of these infamous trips are legacies of laughter and love he leaves to family and friends.
    Left to cherish his memory are his wife Crystal; sons, Casey, Jamie and Bobby; daughter, Kyleigh; and his greatest joy and love, Chandler, his 8 month old grandson; brother, Charles (Barbara) of Seven Springs, NC; sisters, Dot Carroll of Ashland, KY ; Katherine (Sonny) Garrett, and beloved baby sister, Helen Dee Rymer, all of Ravenswood; and sister-in-law, Judy Rymer of Leon, WV.  Also his best pal, Peanut the Wonderdog, who mourns his loss.
    Also surviving Jim are many nieces and nephews, as well as his many friends and buddies who remained close and caring throughout the years.
    Preceding him in death besides his parents are his Mamaw, Edna McGugin; brothers, Burr and Tom Rymer; brother-in-law, David Carroll; great niece, Rebecca Grace, and great nephew, Brendan Adam Nelson Smith.
    A Memorial Service to Celebrate Jim’s life will be held on Sunday, April 22, 2012, at 2:00 pm at Praise Cathedral, 500 Elwood Street in Ravenswood.  It will be a service to recall a memory or tell a story of his adventures.
    In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Premier Bank, 601 Washington Street, Ravenswood, WV 26164, for an educational fund for his dear grandson, Chandler Rymer-Touvell.
    Joe Roush and Roush Funeral Home, Ravenswood, has lovingly served the family.
