James Everette (Jim) Oliver of Strasburg, VA, died unexpectedly February 6, 2017, at his home.

Jim is survived by his mother of Richmond, his son Jared Wesley Oliver (Andie) of Erie, PA, step-daughter Katie Ritenour of Winchester, and grandchildren Kyrah, Wesley, Blake, Hailey, and Jenna. Jim is also survived by his siblings John Oliver (Charlotte) of Long Beach, MS, Rozanne Oliver of Charlottesville, and Arlene Stetson (Philip) of Massanutten; and numerous nieces and nephews. Jim was a quiet man with a wry sense of humor. He loved all sports, especially Redskins football and NASCAR racing, and was a lover of crossword puzzles. He enjoyed cooking and his homemade rolls were a feature of family holiday dinners. A memorial gathering will take place at Turner-Robertshaw Funeral Home on Saturday, February 11, 2017 from 5-7pm.
