Beloved Father, Grandfather, and Brother


James E. "Jim" Calogeras, 77, of Avon Lake, passed away on Wednesday, August 8, 2018. Jim was born in Cleveland, Ohio to Nicholas and Angela (nee Palta) Calogeras.

Beloved father of Tina Calogeras, Edward Calogeras (Julie), and Jennifer Clay (Corey); cherished grandfather of Matthew, Zach, Isabel, and Alyssa; loving brother of Athena Godet-Calogeras (Jean-Francois).

Jim spent his entire 38-year career as an Aeronautical Engineer for NASA Glenn Research Center. Upon retirement, he volunteered for Community Meals, tutored for Seeds of Literacy, and provided free tax service for the AARP. Jim also loved to play golf, fish, socialize, and travel. His favorite pastime, however, was spending time with family.
