Jim served his country during WWII in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Eaton in the South Pacific where he earned a Purple Heart. He retired from the Berkshire Eagle in Pittsfield MA and moved to Cape Cod to be near family. Jim loved golf and shot a hole-in-one at the age of 88 at Chequessett Country Club where he was a longtime member. An avid fan of the Boston Celtics, he never missed watching a game. He enjoyed his almost daily visits to Willy's Gym and loved doing anything for his family.
A memorial will be planned for a later date. Donations in Jim's name can be made to the Lower Cape Outreach. Contribute online at www.lcoutreach.org or by mail to P.O. Box 665, Orleans, MA 02653. For online condolences, please visit www.nickersonfunerals.com

"Dear Inella and Family, We are so very sorry to hear about the passing of Jim. I will never forget the day we moved in next door to Jim and Inella a..." John and Maria VanDerLaan (Southbury, CT)
