James William “Jimmy” Wert, age 70, of Saranac, formerly of Lowell, passed away Tuesday morning, December 30, 2014, at Spectrum Health, Blodgett Campus in East Grand Rapids following a brief illness.  He was born on September 12, 1944, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  He attended Lowell area schools and worked at Root Manufacturing in Lowell, which later became Hudson Manufacturing prior to his retirement with 26 years of service.  “Snorkel”, as he was nicknamed by his friends, loved television and movies and watched western and action themed shows, like Bonanza, Gunsmoke and In the Heat of The Night.  Jimmy also liked country music, anything with wheels and an engine, and collecting things like coins and his pocket watch.  In a conversation held in the days before his death, he expressed that, he dearly loved his family--more than they will ever know.  

 

He is survived by two sisters, Frances Osburn and Roseanna Raney, both of Saranac; and several nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his dear mother, Freda Marie (Wert) Osburn
