November 19, 2021

James F. Drumm, 88, of Lititz, went to be with his Lord on Friday, November 19, 2021. He was the devoted husband of Mary J (Davis) Drumm with whom he shared over 58 years of marriage. Born April 20, 1933, in Lancaster, Jim was the son of the late Isaac and Elizabeth (Glass) Drumm.

Jim’s mother died when he was 6 years old and he was raised by his father and other relatives. At 17 he joined the Army and was in the Artillery and fought in Korean War. After the Army he worked for the Lancaster Stockyards hauling cattle. He had several trucking jobs and eventual was able to purchase his own truck. He was an independent long haul trucker usually hauling chemicals all over the country.

Jim had four children: Linda wife to Richard Wagner, Bonnie wife of John Yoder, James T. Drumm and Tammy wife of Fran Wunderlich. He has 7 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

Jim was an active motorcyclist. He rode with the Christian Motorcycle Club. He had a couple of very long motorcycle trips, one with some buddies to Alaska and another trip with his wife Mary to California. He did most of his own maintenance work on his trucks and loved to tinker in his shop. He fixed up and painted old trucks, cars, jeeps and farm tractors. After retiring he had several part time jobs and volunteered. He volunteered with the VA driving veterans to their doctor appointments to the Coatesville VA hospital. He was always helping out friends and neighbors and was liked by everyone. He would say that he had a good life!

Jim was an active member of the Wesley Church Quarryville.

Bonnie,
My condolences for the loss of your dad. No matter how old they are it is still challenging loosing a parent. As conveyed in his obituary he certainly lived a full life. I wish you and your family well. Greg Schreder
