James Casey Kan, Jr., 26, a loving son, brother, uncle, and friend to all, of 272 Chapel Fork Road, Marshburg, PA passed away Saturday, March 18, 2017. Born October 5, 1990 in Buffalo, he was a son of James Casey and Middalia (Rivera) Kan, Sr.
He was a 2009 graduate of Bradford High School, where he excelled in wrestling, football, and choir. He was a Boy Scout and a member of Future Farmers of America.
James attended Our Mother of Perpetual Help Church and was a former altar server.
He enjoyed motorcycle riding, dirt bike riding, four-wheeling, boating and kayaking. His greatest joy was being outdoors. He loved to fish, hunt, shoot archery, camp, spend time with his dogs (Sinda and Boy), and hunt coyotes. James loved to travel to new places — all you had to do was ask, and he was on the road with family or friends.
He was a member of the Bradford Gun Club, the Eagles, and the Mosquito Creek Sportman's Club.
James worked as a water truck driver for Kan's Water Hauling, a family-owned business.
Surviving, in addition to his parents, are two sisters, Kaitlyn Kan of Lewis Run, PA and Nichole Kan of Rochester; one niece, Kyla Kan of Lewis Run, PA; his girlfriend, Ashleigh White, with whom he resided; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Ralph and Confesora Rivera; and his paternal grandparents, James and Patricia Kan.
Family will receive friends on Wednesday, March 22 from 3:00-5:00 and 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Hollenbeck-Cahill Funeral Homes, Inc., 33 South Ave., Bradford, PA, where a prayer service will be held Thursday, March 23 at 9:15 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00 a.m. in Our Mother of Perpetual Help Church in Lewis Run, with Rev.
