James Lentz III Obituary


James M. Lentz III, age 58, passed away May 19, 2023, at his residence in Botkins, Ohio.

He was born May 9, 1965, in Newark, Ohio, to James M. Lentz Jr. and Patricia (Sullivan) Frosdick, who both survive in Celina.

Also surviving are his brother and two sisters: David Lentz, Joyce (Marc) Zizelman, and Amy (Justin) Lawler, all of Celina, and many nieces & nephews.

A 1983 graduate of Celina High School, Jimmy served with the U.S. Army in Texas from 1983-1987.  He had worked at OMNI Manufacturing in St. Marys for many years.

A gentle soul, Jimmy was very kind and generous, and had literally given someone the shirt off of his back.  He was known to take care of others before himself.
