Proudest of his three children, Brett (Natalie), Cherie and Jason (Ami) Miner and the three he helped raise, Joseph, Nicole Noto and Charlie Leva. Treasured Grandchildren: David, Chad, Timothy, Zachary, Samantha, Madison and Asher - Elizabeth, Janessa, Alyssa and Silas.

When home in his beloved Hoosick Falls, you could find Dubby mowing the fairways at the Hoosick Falls Country Club, bartending at special events, hanging out at the Polish Hall or donating many hours at Kiwanis events as President and active member and screaming at football games.

Jim is also survived by his brother, Donald & his wife Carolyn along with many nieces and nephews.

SERVICES: There will be a memorial service on Monday, April 17th at 11 am at Gerald Solomon National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, Jim requested donations be made to the Karen & Molly McGovern Fund at Mahar Funeral Home, 43 Main Street, Hoosick Falls.
