Jim (Harold J.) Reece Suffern, NY Our beloved Jim Reece of Suffern, NY, passed away on Friday, August 28, at Good Samaritan Hospital, taken from us by an illness he could not overcome.  He leaves behind his high school sweetheart, wife Barbara (Shuckhart) whom he married in 1963 and the light of his life, and son David, who now makes his home in Montgomery, NY.  The Reece's joined the family of Camp Venture in 1971 and enthusiastically served the organization during the height of the deinstitutionalization of Letchworth Village and the development of community programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Rockland County, NY.

In retirement he was appointed Chairman of the golf committee at Spook Rock Golf Course, where he spent many wonderful years on the course with friends playing the sport he loved.   Jim Reece was a proud Marine.  He enlisted in the US Marine Corps Reserve in June of 1961, was transported for basic training to Paris Island, SC, and then was assigned to an engineering company at Camp Lejeune, NC, for specialized training as a combat engineer.  Over the course of his seven year commitment, he served in units across the country, obtained the rank of Sergeant and receiving an honorable discharge from the US Marine Corps in 1968. Jim accepted a position with General Foods as a sales manager in Pittsburgh, and thus began a long career in the food industry with assignments taking the family to Ohio, New York, Michigan and back to Rockland County in Suffern, New York, in 1970. Jim served as President of Food Enterprises, a major food broker in the New York metropolitan area for many years where he met and embraced lifelong friends.  Jim closed his career as President of his brokerage company, J and A Sales.    Along with his wife and son, Jim is survived by his brother, Jerry Reece (Sandy) of Englewood, FL, is predeceased by brothers Philip and Richard, leaves sister-in law, Lois Calderone of Battle Creek, MI, Mary Jane Frederick of Littleton, CO; the Calderone nieces and nephew, Lisa Spierings (John), Paul (Elizabeth) and Marylyn and all their dear children; and many Reece family members.
