James W. Striner, Jr., 46, of Connellsville (Springfield Twp), went home to be with the Lord on Monday September 6, 2021 at his residence.

He was a member of Mt. Tabor Church of God.

James was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan and always made sure to watch the games and yell at the tv when the Steelers decided to fumble the ball. James’ family will surely remember the times they would hear him yelling at the tv after the Steelers fumbled or they got a touchdown.
