Robert James Wirth, 69, departed this world on May 13, 2024, surrounded by loved ones. Born August 31,1954 in Toledo, Ohio to Robert and Beatrice Wirth. Jim is survived by wife, Kathi, daughters, Lindsey Wirth (partner, Cary) of Jefferson, Georgia; Kelley McClintock (Paul) of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina; stepson, Cole Nelson (Lindsey) of El Lago, Texas; grandchildren, Brooke 19, Hayden 16, Shane 14, Blake 11, and Madison 4; brothers, Gary Wirth (Nancy) of Dawsonville, Georgia, and Glenn Wirth (Annemarie) of Heath, Ohio; as well as beloved nieces and nephews.

A graduate of Ohio University, Jim moved to Houston, Texas in the early 80’s where he began a successful career in industrial ink sales. He lived and raised his family in the Clear Lake, Texas area until 2006 when his career brought him to Georgia, the place he called home. He was a member of 12Stone Church of Lawrenceville, Georgia, volunteered with the Lawrenceville Food Coop, enjoyed golfing, woodworking, fishing or hiking on his annual “manly man” trips, playing on the trivia team, and having a good time with the family and friends he truly treasured. A man with an endearing smile and kind nature, a loving husband, father, brother. Known for his clever wit and playful comebacks, he will be deeply missed by all who knew him. We are comforted by the knowledge that he is now in the hands of our faithful and loving God.

  2. CandleImageMany people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart.

  3. In the summer of 1979, friends and family gathered in celebration. It was a wonderful moment in time. I cherish this photo as it captures the essence of a family that shaped my life. There is love and respect for father, mother, brothers, and a new, beautiful spouse. What a blessing.
    They honored God; they respected their elders, they nurtured meaningful relationships with friends, they made a positive impact on my life: for which, I am thankful.
    To his wife, Kathi, I offer my condolences. To his children and grandchildren, I can share that he was a great guy, we had a lot of good times together. He was cutting edge cool, and I am thankful for the times we shared.

  4. CandleImagePeople drift into our lives who leave impressions, and Jim was one of those for me. I met him through the trivia team and enjoyed every minute I spent in his company, as limited as it was … I knew the kind of person he was through those interactions, and it was enough to know how he will be missed by those who loved him. My thoughts are with his family, to whom I want to say that I am truly glad I knew him, and I am thankful I was fortunate enough to have spent time with him.

  5. CandleImageWe are shocked and so very sorry to hear of Jim’s passing, we always enjoyed our time with you both, he will be missed.
