“I may not always be right, but I’m never wrong.” Even he enjoyed catching a glimpse of himself in a passing mirror: Jim was a good-looking guy. His mother called him Mr. V.I.P. As a kid he learned a respect for money: his cash was washed and ironed and he lent with interest. And from the days of his youth he was a history buff and loved nature; he devoured every book he could get his hands on (especially if written by Louis L’Amour), knew everything about WWII and read National Geographic. He was always off on an adventure with his kids: hiking, bike riding and camping. But most of all he enjoyed taking them out to dinner to see what they would order (Calamari anyone?) He worked for Rastelli Food in Pureland.
He is survived by his wife, Angelica; his children, Jordan, Lilly DelGado, Isabella, James Jr., and Natalie; his father, Frederick (Fritz) Sr.; his brothers, Frederick Jr., Thomas (Rose), Eric (Heather); and sisters, Elizabeth LeDonne (Dennis), Mary Ellen Rathof, Theresa Bross, Lois Marie Jingeleski (Steven) and Laura “Cricket” Hahn (Bruce); and by his many nieces and nephews. He was pre-deceased by his mother, Elizabeth (nee Dromgoole) and a brother, Karl.
