James (Jim) Vernon Hoover, 87, passed away on the morning of Sunday, October 4th, 2020 peacefully at the home he shared with family in Thurmont, MD. He was born on August 26, 1933 to Mamie and Cecil Hoover in Williamsport, MD.

Jim grew up a farm boy with his two brothers John and Donald. At the age of 23 he began his career as a truck driver for Rockville Fuel and Feed where he retired after 42 years. Jim was also a lifetime member and served as the Governor of the Moose Lodge in Rockville, MD.

He loved music and had a passion for playing his guitars. Billiards became one of his favorite past times and anyone that was up for a game knew that he was a true professional. Family was always his priority and he took great pride in being the patriarch.
