Jim graduated from Rahway New Jersey High School in 1951 and then  went on to serve in the U.S. Army from 1954-1955.  He retired from the U.S.P.S. after 37 years of dedicated service.  Jim was a lifetime member of the American Legion, L.O.O.M., Elks Lodge B.P.O.E., various Pilot clubs and St. Anastasia Catholic Church.  He was a personal pilot for 40 years and truly enjoyed flying, was a huge Giants fan, enjoyed golfing, fishing, dancing, and was a huge animal lover.  He had a great sense of humor and you could catch him often performing the song “Alice” at any party.
