CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. -- James “Jim” W. Dupuis, 64, of Academy Street, died unexpectedly Wednesday, April 25, 2007, at Glens Falls Hospital. He was the husband of R. Judith (Carino).

Jim worked as a manager for Grand Union grocery stores for many years. It was a transfer with the company from Crown Point in 1970 that brought him and his family to Cambridge where they had relatives already living. Later, he worked for the Town of Jackson and Allied Auto Parts in Greenwich. Unfortunately, cardiovascular disease forced him into early retirement.

Jim enjoyed hunting and spending time at his camp in Moriah, known as Crowfoot. He played pool, darts and bowled. He was an avid golfer and a member of the Battenkill Country Club. In recent years he enjoyed spending time at Windy Hills golf course, where he was considered a member of the family.
