Everyone knew Jimmy, from storeowners, postman, and the local police patrolman. Jimmy had a bright and energetic personality and was known for his ability to sense when people needed help.

He was close to Donna’s parents, Agnes and Jack, who he had visited many times. He was also very close to Donna’s children, to whom he spent much time celebrating birthdays, and all the holidays. They affectionately called him “Uncle Jimmy”. He became a great uncle to baby J., who he adored. Jimmy will be deeply missed by Fred and Donna Greatorex of Dedham; Sr. Rosaire Hickey, O.P. of Medford; Jessica and Jonathan Friel of West Roxbury.
