    Notes 
    • WAYLAND - James H. Crossett Jr., 78, of 9939 State Route 21 S., passed away Tuesday evening (July 17, 2007) at his home surrounded by his family.

      Jim was born Jan. 24, 1929, in Hornell, the son of James H. Crossett Sr. and Pauline Burdett Crossett.

      His early childhood was spent in Hornell and his high school years were spent in Almond, having graduated from Alfred-Almond High School. Jim and Katherine Yohonn were married Aug. 22, 1953, at St. Joseph's in Wayland. Together they moved to Hornell for a couple of years prior to moving to Wayland, where they have resided in the same house together ever since. Jim and Kay have celebrated more than 53 years of marriage. Jim served his country during the Korean Conflict in the United States Army from Dec. 6, 1950, until his honorable discharge Nov. 18, 1952. He remained in the Army Reserves until Oct. 23, 1956. Jim's employment career subsequent to his service in the Army included more than 30 years in the dietetic department as a supervisor at the Bath VA. He retired from there in 1989.


      Jim's hobbies were many. His favorite was baseball, in which he loved playing and watching it. During his younger years he played on semi-pro teams in the Pony League in Wellsville and was a member of the Cohocton Red Wings. As he got older he moved on to fast pitch softball. His interest in baseball continued in life as he was always playing ball with his children and was an umpire for Wayland Little League for many years. Jim also enjoyed bowling and playing cards (especially poker, euchre and scat). He also took pleasure in hunting both big and small game. Jim loved his family dearly and always found time for those Sunday rides looking for woodchucks and getting ice cream. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.

      Jim was predeceased in life by his parents, James H. Sr. and Pauline Crossett; his brother, Francis Crossett; and his sister, Paulena Wheeler. He is survived by his wife of more than 53 years, Katherine Crossett of Wayland; his children, Mark (Susan) Crossett of Springwater, John (Patti) Crossett of Wayland, Mary Kay Gould (Steven Holley) of Cohocton and Linda (James) Wallace of Wayland; his grandchildren, Jason (Robin) Crossett of Philadelphia, Pa., Katie Crossett of Rochester, Andrew, Daniel and Breanne Crossett, all of Wayland, David Gould of Arizona, April Gould of Utica and Ben Gould of Cohocton, and Sam and Peter Wallace of Wayland; and several nieces and nephews.

      Jim's family and friends may call from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. today at the St. George-Stanton Funeral Home, 109 West Naples St., Wayland. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated for Jim at 11 a.m. Friday at St. Joseph's Church in Wayland. Interment and committal prayers along with military honors will take place at St. Joseph's Cemetery in Wayland immediately following. Contributions in James H. Crossett Jr.'s memory may be made to Wayland Little League, P.O. Box 583, Wayland, NY 14572 or to the Southern Tier Hospice, 11751, East Corning Road, Corning, NY 14830
