Lynda, Jameson and Veronica. We're so sorry for your loss. It's difficult to know that Jimmy won't be just a phone call away. We have so many good memories of him hanging out at our house in West Islip, it was his home away from home. Jimbo was a happy go lucky guy, we have so many pictures of all of us getting together in the kitchen and goofing off, especially on Friday nights. I (Suzy) always asked Jimmy the same question back then and until the end...Who's your favorite sister-in-law and I always got the same answer...you are Suzy. It started back when I was his only one. I (Rich) will always remember when as a young guy Jimmy would hang out with me when I worked on my car. We always talked cars on the phone in later years. We always had that in common my brother. We love you and will miss you

My earliest memory of my brother Jimbo was how he always had a bounce in his step. He would walk down the street as a teenager and lift himself up with each step. And he always had a beautiful smile! Jimbo worked hard after school & bought a brand new Nova in 1970. He was a great role model and a fantastic big brother. He looked after me during all my dating years on Long Island. He was extremely caring and helpful. He was also very artistic and imaginative. Jimbo was proudest when he met Lynda and they married. As a husband and a father to Veronica & Jameson, he understood this was his greatest purpose.
