James R. "Jay" Hilscher Obituary

James “Jay” Richard Hilscher, age 67, of Beaver Falls, formerly of Moon Twp., passed away on Wednesday, March 20th, 2024, while surrounded by his family.

Jay is survived by his wife Jan Hilscher, son, Jay Hilscher Jr, daughter, Lindsay Freeman (Ryan), step-sons Ron Cramer (Julieann White), Andy Cramer (Courtney), step-daughter Monica Carusone (Anthony), 7 grandchildren, Isaac, Amelia, Evelyn, Aria and Ethan Hilscher, Kennedy Cramer, and Anthony Jr Carusone. He is also survived by his brother Hyde Woodhall Hilscher (Susan), and his sister Lorraine Mossbarger. He was preceded in death by a son, Gregory T. "Greg" Hilscher.

Recently retired, Jay spent over 30-years in the food brokerage business.

Jay was a true patriarch to his growing family and an irreplaceable fixture within his close-knit circle of friends. He very generously shared his heart with his loved ones and extended that love to anyone who happened to come through his door. He made everyone feel right at home with his presence. An avid golfer, if Jay was on your team, you probably won.
