May 30, 1966 — July 25, 2023

Cleveland, Ohio

James R. Erskine, age 57, passed away on July 25, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love and cherished memories. He was born on May 30, 1966, in Cleveland, Ohio, to his beloved parents, Donald and Alma Erskine. James was a devoted husband to Tammy L. Erskine and a caring father to his children: James (Danny) Erskine, Gerald (Charlie) Brennan, Christy (Bella) Pacl, Jessica Spear, and Tabitha Brennan. He was a doting grandfather to Mariah Burke, Christian Rodriguez, Gianna Burke, Noah Brennan, and Savayah Pacl.

Growing up in Cleveland, James was known for his warm and giving nature. He was a pillar of strength to his family and friends, always ready to lend a helping hand. James had a close bond with his siblings, Linda Acierno (Doug) and Donald Erskine (Deceased), and the memories they shared brought much joy to his life.

Beyond his love for the outdoors, James was a loving and caring uncle to many nieces and nephews. His kind spirit and thoughtful gestures touched the lives of all those who were fortunate enough to know him.

James had a passion for the open road and spent many memorable hours riding his motorcycle. He found solace and tranquility at the lake, where he often went on his bike to immerse himself in nature. Fishing was another cherished pastime that brought him immense joy and relaxation.
