James was born on July 8, 1931 and passed away on Saturday, March 11, 2017.
James was a resident of Anchorage, Alaska at the time of passing.
Jim was born in Detroit and grew up in Farmington, MI, and worked summers on Mackinac Island, MI; graduating from University of Detroit Jesuit High School and U of D College.
He served in the U.S. Army at the Frankfurt Arsenal in Philadelphia for three years in 1950's, and was later quite pleased when granddaughter, Abby, also chose to serve for three years.
A memorial mass was said for Jim in Anchorge, AK, and family and friends are remembering him in their own parishes. An interment ceremony will be held in Massachusetts at the Bourne National Veteran's Cemetery at a later date. All are welcome to attend the interment and to join with friends and family afterwards at Mezza Luna in Buzzards Bay for sharing stories and love in Jim's memory.
In lieu of flowers, donations are recommended to St. Vincent de Paul societies at your local parish, to Maryknoll Missions, which Jim supported throughout his life, to the Christian Appalachian Project, or to a charity of one's choice.
