James “Jamie” Leland Anthony, age 84, a native of Dudleytown, Indiana and a resident of Crothersville, Indiana, passed from this life to Glory on Sunday, September 5, 2021 at Schneck Medical Center. He was born on July 5, 1937 to the late James Blaine Anthony and the late Mary (Derringer) Moody.
James was a member of Uniontown Baptist Church. He will forever be remembered as a kind, loving and gentle man that loved people, but didn’t put up with any “nonsense”.
