James William Hoon, age 83, of Las Vegas, Nevada passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 14, 2021. James was born November 2, 1937 in Canton, Ohio to Demar and Velda Hoon. After spending his childhood in Canton, James enlisted in the Air Force at the age of 16 with his parents’ permission and worked as a Radio Technician.

After his time in the service, he returned to Canton and began to work at a Steel Mill and then the post office for USPS. In Canton, he started his family with his late wife and 3 children. After many years, James and his family relocated to California where they continued to grow their family with one more daughter. He worked for UPS for 30 years in California retiring in 1991. In 1981, James met his now wife Susan and they were married on June 21, 1981. They shared 40 loving years together traveling all over the world. James and Susan relocated to Las Vegas in 1992. While in Las Vegas, James worked at the Chicken Ranch. This was his favorite job he ever had. In his free time, he was the happiest barbequing and hanging out with his family by the pool.
