He was born in Akron, Ohio and spent his entire life in and around the New Franklin and Canal Fulton areas.

He worked as an HVAC technician at Summa Health Systems for 42 years retiring in October of 2014. He was a proud veteran of the U.S. Navy. Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Charles R. Wery and Cecilia A. Wery and sister-in-law Sharon Wery. He is survived by his loving wife of almost 44 years, Karen (Knight) Wery; his daughter and son-in-law Lisa A. and Dennis L. Buchanan and the lights of his life, grandchildren, Gavin and Payton Buchanan of Massillon, and brother Robert Wery of Delaware, Ohio.
