James was born on January 7, 1931 and passed away on Saturday, January 6, 2018.

James was a resident of Michigan at the time of passing.

After graduating from Hackensack High School, Jim attended Cooper Union University where he graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Jim served in the US Navy for two years after his college graduation and then began a long career in the tire and rubber industry.

At Jim's request, there will be no service or visitation. A gathering of friends and family will take place later at a location to be determined.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting memorials be made in Jim's memory to Cooper Union University, World Vision, or another charity you are passionate about.
