He was born in Lansing, Michigan. James grew up in Mason, Michigan, graduating from Mason High School in 1983.

James worked in Jack Sander’s Furniture Store in Albion, Michigan repairing television and electronics. He then went to work for Gene Sorgi (his favorite job he loved the most) at Jilco in Marshall, Michigan and Patriot Antenna Systems in Albion, Michigan.

He married Beth (nee Marsh) March 7, 1987, in Lansing, Michigan. They had two daughters, Alexia and Crista, whom they raised in Albion, Michigan. After a hard winter, he decided to have no more snow, so their whole family moved to Ocala, Florida in 2014 where they have lived ever since.

He enjoyed watching his birds from his front porch. James raised chickens as a hobby and 2 ducks. He liked putting together his car models. He loved teaching his children and grandchildren about car repair, electric repair, house repair. He could do it all and loved sharing his knowledge with his family.

Their children; Annika McCarrick, Jaiden and James Rouse, Garret and Hunter Sarver, Bryson, and Faye Sarver. His brother Todd Silvis (Lisa), two sisters Tracy (Mike) Wing, Wendi (Terry) Ellsworth. Many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, many of the best friends you could ever hope to have!

    Jimmy Silvis was a great friend and the perfect employee! Hard worker that truly loved his jobs. Jimmy loved hunting, fishing, and tinkering with stuff, and being with his family.

    He truly loved his wife, kids, daughter and granddaughters.!
