JAMES K. RAO Jr. Obituary
Rao, James K. Jr. 34, of Beverly, passed away Friday, February 7, 2014. Jimmy will be most remembered for his huge heart and nature of giving back. He was a very handsome young man with many unique qualities. Jimmy did fulfill some of his dreams, but in some cases, his dreams were interrupted by his never ending demons. Jimmy held many different jobs during his short lifetime, but the one he loved most, was where he could help others, Jenny Craig. His great sense of humor and love for his family and friends will always be cherished. His love for his sister Dianne, was a special bond. Jimmy struggled with and fought extremely hard to overcome demons that hindered or interfered with his ability to fulfill all his dreams. Jimmy also had a unique gift for writing. He had a dream of publishing a series for Soap Opera TV that he worked on for many years of his young adult life. From Dianne, Jim, Dominic, Matt, Winston, Lennie and Jar, you will always be with us. Jimmy is resting now with the woman he loved the most, his mother Linda, who passed away over eight years ago. Jimmy talked about his mother with the kindest words every day since her passing. Jimmy was survived by his father: James K. Rao Sr., his sister Dianne Rao and his nephew Dominic, his paternal grandmother: Pauline Rao; along with aunts, uncles, cousins and many wonderful friends. In lieu of flowers, donations would be much appreciated to Saint Jude's Children's Hospital, 501 St Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105. There will not be any immediate services. However, there will be a service, followed by a dinner to honor Jimmy's Life, once the weather turns nicer. If Jimmy could say something right now to all of you, he would thank you for being so kind to him and never giving up on him.
