James "Big Swede" Merical

James Glen Merical (Big Swede) – James came into this world

2-24-1973 and passed of natural causes on 10-22-2020.

James faced many obstacles in his 47 year journey. He had a wonderful sense of humor and an unforgettable smile. He found that helping others gave him peace. James discovered he had a wonderful talent for woodworking and art. Much of his artwork was donated to raise funds for the veterans all over the US. Although he was not a vet, he appreciated and supported them. James loved animals, so it was not a surprise that he helped train leader dogs for the blind. He said he learned much from the dogs he trained – like patience. James was a very caring person who never forgot his family at birthdays and holidays. He is deeply loved by his family and will be missed greatly. Those left to celebrate his memories include his mother and stepfather, Michele and David Reasland, his sister Deanna Henderson, niece Hailey Haines, great niece Ella, his special aunt, Madonna Wallace and a list of extended family and friends too numerous to list.

We love and miss you.

Until we meet again
