He was trained as a winder at Westinghouse in East Pittsburgh and continued in his trade after the plant’s closure by working for Generator Motor Services. In his retirement, Jimmy served as a school crossing guard on Woodstock Avenue in Swissvale.
Jimmy possessed a keen Irish sense of humor and enjoyed sharing it, particularly at the former Acorn Club in Swissvale. He was a very welcoming, accepting person who loved people regardless of differences of opinion or heritage. Jim was a low-handicap golfer and bowled many games at the Swissvale Bowl-a-Rama. He was a staunch Steeler fan, and a favorite pastime was watching sports on television.
