October 23, 1949 - September 22, 2021
127 days is all he could stand to be without his wife of over 48 years who passed earlier this spring. James Garfield Dishman Sr., of Goodlettsville TN, age 71, passed into the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. He enjoyed being outdoors; fishing, hunting, and camping, but always with family and friends. While first impressions of him may have been of a gruff mountain man, he made friends easily and was always ready to joke and kid around. He was not a master of words, but he'd always comment on your Facebook post, because he was sure that it was just between you and him. His early career was spent as a printing pressman who loved the craftsmanship of working closely with artists. Later in life he and his wife enjoyed their food truck business, Jane's Kitchen. Along with his wife of over 48 years Nancy Jane Rouse Dishman, he was predeceased in death by his parents, Arthur and Delliah Dishman; his granddaughter, Nadia Dishman; siblings, Ann Hickman (Paul), John Dishman, Helen Brewer (Terry); and sister by marriage Phyllis Brown. He is survived by his sons James Dishman Jr. (Tara) of Bristol, TN and Stephen Dishman (Debbie) of Goodlettsville, TN; grandchildren, Zachery Dishman of Raleigh, NC, Jacob Dishman of Abingdon, VA, Jacob Dishman of Bristol, TN, Sasha Dishman of Goodlettsville, TN; great-grandchild, Malakai Dishman of Abingdon, VA; his sister, Carol Brewer (Anthony) of Abingdon, VA; siblings by marriage, Jerry Rouse (Betty) of Neptune Beach, FL, Doug Rouse (Brenda) of Morristown, TN, Chuck Rouse (Lynette) of Katy, TX; many cousins, nieces and nephews. A graveside service will be conducted at 1:00 P.M., Saturday, September 25, 2021 at Mountain View Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 5:30 – 7:30 P.M., Friday at the funeral home.
