Jameson Muntz Obituary

Jameson Kelly Muntz of Rochester, beloved father, son, brother, and friend, passed away this January in his Gates home at the age of 42.

“Jay” was a first-born son to young parents Gayle and Bill on March 19, 1981 in Port Clinton, Ohio, and was the first grandchild on both sides of his family. He grew up in the Cleveland area before moving to New York and the town of Gates in the summer of 1988. In his younger years he loved to trade and collect football cards, as well as playing with Hot Wheels and G.I. Joes, which were all precursors to his adult life. He also really enjoyed spending time near the water on Lake Erie at Lakeside Chautauqua and Catawba Island with his grandparents.

Jameson graduated from Gates-Chili in 1999, where he found many cherished friends and discovered that childhood toys can become life-long passions. Some of those included playing football, customizing his cars, and joining the United States Air Force. He was always known as someone who was willing to help others, even if he didn’t know them.

In life, passion can often lead to pain, which can be said of all the broken bones from football, the endless speeding and noise citations from those cars, and the struggle of living as a disabled U.S. Veteran. Jameson was always one to embrace the things he loved no matter the consequence, and this included the family and friends who were lucky enough to have him.

He is survived by his children, Austin DeLorme, Brianna Muntz, and Avery Muntz; mother Gayle Biedenbach (George, deceased); father Bill Muntz (Judy); brothers Ryan Morton (Leslie) and George Biedenbach II; sisters Melissa and Jennifer Biedenbach; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless friends. He left a legacy of love that was felt most by his two mothers Gayle and Judy, and will hopefully be remembered by all of his children.

Friends and family are invited to call on Friday, January 26 from 4-6 PM at James R. Gray Funeral Home, 1530 Buffalo Rd. Rochester, NY 14624. Military Honors will be rendered at 5:45 PM.
