James C. Slinker

Monday April 19, 2021

James C. Slinker, age 80, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, April 19, 2021.

He is survived by his loving wife, Gail L. Slinker; son, Tim (Sandy) Slinker; daughter, Kathy Jo Slinker Haney; stepchildren: Shawn (Rosa) Sherwood and Samantha (Tom) Puskac; dear grandchildren: Hannah, Isabella, Gabby, Alayna and Tori Sherwood, and ReAunna and Josh Puskac, and siblings: Denny and Linda; and many friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents: James and Ruby; and his first wife and mother to his children, Katy Slinker.

Jimmy retired out of LTV Steel after 40 years of dedicated service as a welder.  After retirement, he found his passion in woodworking, using his garage as his workshop and furnishing much of his home with his pieces.

When he wasn’t creating, he was traveling.  He absolutely loved this great country and wanted to see as much of it as he possibly could.  He and Gail had enjoyed many road trips, which took them through every state but Hawaii.

He will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew and loved him.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 6:00 PM on Thursday, April 29, 2021 with visitation starting at 3:00 at Calumet Park Funeral Chapel, 7535 Taft Street, Merrillville.
