Obituary for Jay A. Ream

Jay A. Ream, 93, formerly of Spanogle Avenue, Lewistown passed away at 12:55 p.m. on Monday May 7, 2018 at Valley View Haven Retirement Community.
Born March 2, 1925 in Lewistown, he was the son of the late Eva and John Ream. Jay was also preceded in death by his loving wife Peggy (Cutler) Ream, who passed away on Sept 29th, 2014, a sister, Geraldine Rowe, and brothers, Donald and Floyd Ream.
Jay will be remembered and missed by his children; Barry Ream and wife Deborah of Elkton, Va., and Brad Ream and wife Ruth of Lewistown; Grandchildren, Jeremy Ream and wife Dana, Julie Dinkel and husband Scott, and Zachary Ream; and Great Grandchildren, Reagan and Rylie Ream, Kayla, Benjamin and Loren Dinkel, and Madison Ream.
Jay was employed by Standard Steel working in the Wheel Mill.
He was a veteran of WWII, enlisted in the U.S. Army. Serving with the Might 8th Army Aircorps as a navigator-bombardier on a B-24 Liberator. While stationed in Tibenham, England he flew 35 combat missions over Germany. Always quick to point out to his fellow aviators the superiority of the B-24 Bomber over the more privileged B-17!!!
Jay was a member of Grace United Methodist Church for 80 years, serving as a Sunday School teacher and on various committees over the years. He was a member of the Lewistown Masonic Lodge No. 203, The Chief Logan Lion’s Club, and The National Rifle Association. He enjoyed wood working and going to camp, also known as “Pap’s Place.”
A memorial service in loving memory of Jay will be held on Saturday May 12, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at Grace United Methodist Church, 101 Logan Street, Lewistown with Rev. Richard Bender officiating.
Arrangements are under the care of The Barr Funeral Home Inc. and Crematory, 120 Logan Street, Lewistown.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Jay’s memory are respectfully encouraged to Grace United Methodist Church, 101 Logan Street, Lewistown, or Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, 21 S. Main Street, Lewistown.
