James B. Valone, 67, of Russell, PA passed away Friday, October 4, 2019.

He was born on November 20, 1951 in Warren, PA to Robert Joseph Valone (deceased) and Jean Anderson Valone.  Jim spent most of his life in Warren County. He operated his own car dealerships, where he was known for his crazy car commercials and having the cleanest four-wheel drive vehicles in the area. Jim also worked at several New York dealerships over his 40+ years in the business.  Jim participated in many local softball leagues and spent winters hunting in his beloved woods. He could be seen driving around in his classic muscle cars.

Jim is survived by his wife of 40 years, Ruth Murray Valone, two daughters, Kendra Lindsay Valone and Jesse Callen Valone both of State College, PA, a brother, Dennis (Pamela) Valone, Erie, PA, and a sister, Pamela (Benjamin) Falber, Warren, PA, and many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at a later date. Those wishing to honor Jim, the family asks to do so through an act of kindness and keeping those you love close.

It was with a great deal of regret we learned of the recent passing of Jim "Bone" Valone,and or deepest sympathy to his entire family. In younger years we spent much time together at our home and camp. After school we separated ,but always received a warm welcome and the Jim Valone smile and a chuckle or two. Jim Valone may be gone,but his memories will linger on with many of us.

Having known Jim for 55 years,it will leave an empty space.
He would just say “ Let’s Laugh” and that would start a laughter.
My thoughts and prayers to all his family members.
