James was a wonderful husband and father. He brought laughter to all with his slapstick humor and would light up when a grandchild would present him with a corny joke. He loved to socialize with anyone he came across. Cab drivers, waitresses and doormen could not escape his genuine conversation and interest in their lives. An avid Sox fan who enjoyed watching his Uncle Ignatius throw out the first pitch! Extremely proud of his Irish heritage, watching a Notre Dame game was a treat. James was a kind and gentle soul and we will miss the twinkle in his eye for ever and always.
