Jim Hershberger



JIM HERSHBERGER, 69, of Davison, passed away on April 17, 2020.

Jim was born in Flint, on November 17, 1950, son of Elaine Hershberger. He married Shelley (Webb) on September 22, 1972 in Davison. Together they celebrated 48 years of marriage. He owned and operated Hershberger Heating for many years, then worked at Construction Code Authority for Lapeer County and for the last few years at Ace Hardware in Davison. Jim loved to fish and was always trying to catch the “big one.” He could fix or build anything and his friends and family looked to him for help many times. His crusty, yet teddy bear soft, personality and wealth of knowledge will be greatly missed.

Jim is survived by his wife, Shelley; daughter, Kristin (Tony) Orlando; son, Brent (Johnelle) Hershberger; grandchildren, Adrianna, Olivia, Ava Orlando and Wyatt Hershberger; sister, Sally (Matt) Lignitz and family; sisters-in-law, Stephanie (Steve) Deneen, Nancy (Rick) Tracy, Dana (Rob) Borst; many nieces and nephews; special friends, Jim and Joan Barter and too many more to list.

The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the nurses in ICU at Hurley Medical Center.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Trinity Lutheran Church in Jim’s name.

Due to the unusual circumstances, a Private Graveside Committal was held on Monday, April 20, 2020 at Davison Cemetery.
