Fallon, James P.
James P Fallon, 67 of Dayton, OH passed away on January 7, 2014 after a long illness. Jim was born and raised in the Triple Cities of Binghamton NY. He is predeceased by his parents, James and Jean Fallon. He is survived by his Stepmother Dee Fallon, Endicott, NY and daughters; Susan and Kraig Paulsen of Morgan Hill, CA and Catherine and Joe Blake of Dayton, OH. He is also survived by his three grandchildren which he loved dearly; Katie, Maddie, and Max all of Dayton, OH. Jim is survived by three brothers and sister-in-laws; Larry and Vicki Fallon, Endicott, NY, Tom and Beth Fallon, Endicott, NY, and John and Cindy Fallon of Apalachin, NY. He is also survived by many cousins, nieces, and nephews which he enjoyed spoiling. Whenever watching them, dessert was always eaten before anything to be sure there was always room for it. Jim graduated from Johnson City High School in 1964. Jim entered the Marines after high school and served four years. Jim received a Purple Heart for wounds received in combat while in Vietnam. He had a successful career as an Electrical Engineer at General Electric in Johnson City and later transferred to Dayton, OH where he worked for Leland Electrosystems and Smiths Areospace before illness made him retire from G E Avionics. He mentored many engineers that held him in high regard as he worked along side them. Jim was quite the prankster and we will always remember the more infamous ones! He was an avid reader of books; his favorites included science fiction novels. His idea of fun was reading and playing with a book of formulas. He really enjoyed his weekly calls with his Dad where they would talk endlessly about current events and politics. Jim was a wonderful Father, Grandfather, Brother, Cousin, and Uncle and will be greatly missed by all who loved him! Services will be held in April.
