John Whitaker James, Sr. passed away from complications from Parkinson's disease on Thursday, February 18th. He was surrounded by Loretta, his wife of 52 years, and his four children, John Jr.,  Laurissa, Corinne and Randy. He passed away painlessly, in the midst of a peaceful snowfall. A small funeral service with family was held in February, and we held a celebration of John's life via Zoom videoconference on March 20.

We also wish to have an in-person gathering in John's memory once it is safe to get together. Please check back to this site in the future for more details.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations in John's memory be made to two organizations close to his heart:

Christian Community Action of New Haven - (203) 777-7848

Scranton Library of Madison, Connecticut - (203) 245-7365

Thank you for visiting!

-John Jr., Laurissa, Corinne and Randy
