Beloved friend of the Carosone,  Cirrincione,  DeVita, Russo, and Montaperto families.  Special Poppy to John Russo.

Jim was a friend to all.  His kindness, generosity, and overall quiet but big heart will be missed by many.  He wanted at all times only happiness for those he loved.  He will be truly missed but is at last reunited with those we are certain are overjoyed at his homecoming.  His children are grateful for those family and friends that have supported them during this difficult time.

He will be laid to rest at Saint Charles Cemetery.  A memorial mass will be held at Good Shepherd Church at a later date celebrated by family and friends.
