NILES, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – James E. Haywood, Sr. of Niles passed away in his home on Monday, July 5, 2021, at the age of 67.

He was born in Cleveland, Ohio to the late Albert and Genevieve Haywood on October 12, 1953.

He was a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan so he made sure to make everyone aware that being born in Cleveland wasn’t his choice.

He attended Ursuline High School and graduated in 1971.

He loved the Steelers, arguing about the Steelers and Browns, cooking, canning, gardening and in his younger years, enjoyed golfing as well.

He retired from Taylor Coil Processing in 2018.

James is survived by his son, James Haywood, Jr. (Kimberly) of Niles; daughters, Heather Baritell (Matt) of Brookfield and Kari Lape (Rick, Sr.), of Hubbard; nine grandchildren, Kayla, Albert, Benjamin, James III, Callen and Samuel Haywood and Rick, Jr., Ryan and Kora Lape; nephews, Brian and Jason Haywood and niece, Amy Kegel, all of California; close cousin, Jeanne Ward (Tom) of Sharon and ex-wife, Andrea Guyton of Brookfield, whom he remained close friends with.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Genevieve Haywood and his brother, Kenneth Haywood, whom he lost last month.

His family is comforted knowing that he has been reunited with his parents, his brother and his dogs.
