Pastor James A. McCaulley | News, Sports, Jobs
Pastor James A. McCaulley, 82, Indiana, Pennsylvania, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, June 23, 2022, from Indiana Regional Medical Center, Indiana.
The youngest of nine sons of Bertram R. and Mary Elizabeth (Coho) McCaulley, he was born in Frankstown Township, Blair County. He married Donna J. (Mangus) with whom he had enjoyed almost 54 years of marriage when she went to heaven on February 24, 2012.
Pastor McCaulley was a Gold Star father because their son, SFC Randy McCaulley, made the ultimate sacrifice on March 23, 2006 in Iraq. He was so proud of his son’s service and was waiting to meet him in heaven to hear him say, “I love you dad.” He loved spending time with all of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He is survived by his three sons: James McCaulley and his wife, Jackie, of Ringoes, NJ; Indiana’s Daniel McCaulley and Barry McCaulley of Ringoes, NJ; his seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; and his dear church family.
After Donna’s death, Pastor McCaulley married the elder Paige Montgomery, who also predeceased him. Her extended family grew to include Paige’s three children: Clara Ross; Laura Pearce and her husband, Earl, and Michael Montgomery and their families.
Last member of his immediate family, he was predeceased by his parents; his wife Donna; his wife Paige; his son Randy; his grandson, Cody McCaulley; and his eight brothers.
Pastor McCaulley was a graduate of Washington Bible College, Lanham, Md., and served in the US Army Reserves. He dedicated his life to the Lord, his faith, his ministry and his family. Since 1974, he has ministered to the Bible Baptist Church at its two sites in the Clymer community. He had great love for his church family. He loved singing and music, especially gospel music. He has recorded four CDs of gospel music highlighting his love of singing as a means of praising God.
An outdoorsman, some of Pastor McCaulley’s favorite pastimes were hunting and fishing. He worked as a caddy on a golf course in his youth and continued to love golf for the rest of his life.
