In Memoriam: Jim Pace

In Memoriam: Jim Pace

James E. “Jim” Pace, a local auto dealer, passed away peacefully early Sunday morning at his home, surrounded by his family.

 

He was an award-winning auto dealer in the Youngstown-Warren area for over 35 years, most notably, owning and operating Jim Pace Pontiac, Saturn of Route 422 and Saturn of Boardman. Additionally, he owned the GM specialty parts distribution company, Pace Performance. In the 90s, he owned Lincoln Mercury, Chevrolet and Isuzu dealerships. Over the years, Jim and his dealerships received numerous honors in sales, service and most importantly to Jim, customer satisfaction.

In addition to the time and energy Jim devoted to his businesses, he enjoyed giving back to the community he served. He was a past president of the East Ohio Auto Dealer Association, elected to the National Dealer Council and was on the board of Society National Bank. In Jim’s spare time, he enjoyed being a member of various clubs throughout the area, spending time at the YMCA and relaxing with a round of golf or quick trip to the casino.

 

Family and friends may call Wednesday, July 19, 2017, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Peter Rossi & Son Memorial Chapel, 1884 North Road NE in Warren. A Mass of Christian Burial will be Thursday, July 20, 2017, at 10:30 a.m. at the St. Columba Cathedral, 154 W. Wood St. in Youngstown.

 

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Jim’s name to The Hope Center for Cancer Care, 1745 Niles-Cortland Road NE, Warren, OH 44484.
