Jimmy was a courageous and resilient man, who fought health concerns from birth, but never let them impact his outlook on life. He had a large network of close friends, who he would often travel across the country with. Jimmy was a passionate fan of all Pittsburgh sports teams, especially his beloved Pittsburgh Penguins, which he held season tickets to for many years. He enjoyed spending time at the Italian American Citizens Club in Wilkins Twp., but most of all, Jimmy had a large heart for his family and cherished spending time with them.
