November 19, 1967 ~ September 18, 2018
My sweetheart, Jim, passed away peacefully September 18, 2018. James Andrew Sadler was born on November 19, 1967 to William H. and Lani K. (Moore) Sadler in Salt Lake City. He was blessed with a wonderful family who meant the world to him: Mark, Paul – deceased (Ruby), Pamela (David) Corisis, Janice, Patricia (Joseph) Olbrys, Camille (Greg) Hartley, Michael (Marie), Adam (Sandra), Mary Margaret – deceased, and Benedict Sadler.
All of Jim’s life his grandpa, Hod Sadler, now 102, was a shining example for him, as was his godfather, Stan.
Jim graduated from Cyprus High School. He worked at the G&L beam plant for over 20 years and was employed at Rocky Mountain Fabrication at the time of his passing.
Jim married me, Janet, on November 22, 2002 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. I brought two children into his life and into the Sadler family: Dustin Nyle Wilkins (deceased) and Leesa (Sam) Eshelman. Jim and his family welcomed and loved my children as if they were his own. Our four grandkids were the light of his life: Trieden Anthony Wilkins, Kaleb Sabastian Wilkins, Madison Lee Eshelman and Jaxson Douglas Eshelman. They loved their Papa/Grandpa and delighted in being around him. He spoiled his nieces and nephews when they were little kids and enjoyed them when they were all grown up, too.
We made our home in Grantsville. Jim enjoyed gardening and yard work, boasting about “the best lawn in the neighborhood.” He was truly an outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting big game and birds. Camping and fishing were among his passions and we spent many happy times around a campfire in the mountains, where Jim felt the most at peace.
Jim was preceded in death by his parents, infant brother John Thomas, his beloved baby sister Mary, his big brother Paul, and his “buddy” Milk (Dustin), Grandma Shirley Sadler, Grandpa Leo Moore, Grandma Ruby Moore Anthony, Grandpa Charlie Anthony, and several aunts and uncles.
A funeral Mass was celebrated September 26, 2018 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Magna.
