James R. Passeau, 82, of Manor Twp., passed away on Thursday, September 8, 2022, at the Lancaster General Hospital. Born in Johnstown, PA, he was the son of the late Russell and Catherine (McPhee) Passeau.

Jim worked for the Kimberly-Clark Corporation, formerly the Scott Paper Company. Jim was a Sergeant of Guard in corporate security and a part of the Certified Emergency Response Team, Emergency Response Services rescue.

Passeau of Worcester, PA, and three grandchildren, Tiffany DiRado, Jonathan Passeau and Courtney Passeau. Also surviving is his companion of 15 years, Cheryl Henry; three sisters, Carol Goldberg, Kathy Svencer and Janet Plis; and two brothers, Gary Passeau and Ted Passeau. He was preceded in death by his son, Jimmy Passeau, Jr., in June, 2022; three brothers, Bob, George and Ray; and a sister, Lavern.
