Jay J. Sargent, 64, passed away peacefully Saturday evening, November 27th, with his loving family by his side. Jay was born February 28, 1957 in Youngstown, a son of James W. and Nancy M. Fernback Sargent. He was a 1975 graduate of Boardman High School, and a Pipefitter working out of the Plumbers & Steamfitters Local 87/396, for 41 years. He retired in 2012, giving him the opportunity to spend more time doing the things he enjoyed. He was an exercise enthusiast, and could be found most days walking in Mill Creek Park, riding his bike or playing golf with his many friends, getting two hole in ones. One at Stambaugh on the 6th hole, and one at Riverview on the 7th hole. Jay enjoyed gardening, listening to music, spending time with his family and friends, and cheering on his beloved Cleveland Browns. Along with his mother, Nancy, of Boardman, Jay leaves to cherish his memory, his sister Donna (Doug) Gritton of Noblesville, Indiana, niece Jessica (James) Gugert, nephew Brent (Alison) Gritton, great nephew Derek Gugert and great nieces Emery Gugert and Lyla Gritton. Jay’s father, James, preceded him in death in 2020. His family would like to thank The Hope Center for their compassionate care during his courageous two year battle.
