Jim enjoyed life to the fullest, known for his positive attitude, contagious smile and boisterous laugh. Jim’s fondest memories from his youth include summers at Ossipee Lake and vacationing at Hampton Beach with his family. He would never say no to a cookie, donut, or sweet treat and was an avid Red Sox fan. Jim’s favorite days were when he and his love Patty took long drives to the beach for a picnic lunch and a cup of steaming hot chowder. Family was everything to Jim. He loved spending time with Robert Haugh, and his wife Marie, John Haugh and his wife Marie, his niece Emily and nephews Tommy, Michael, Danny and Brian. Jim looked forward to family gatherings especially Christmas Eve festivities at Grammy and Grampys.
