DARATANY, James Thomas

James Thomas Daratany, 55, of Lake Worth, passed away Tuesday, July 29, 2014 due to complications from bladder cancer. Jim was born February 19, 1959 in Mt. Holly, NJ and grew up in Staten Island, NY and Largo, FL. He graduated from Florida State University with a Theatre degree in 1980 and began a varied career exploring his many passions. Jim was employed by Palms of Wellington Surgical Center and took great pride in his work as a surgical technologist. He was blessed with many friends and truly appreciated their support and that of his colleagues during his illness. Those who were fortunate to enjoy his company knew Jim to be a true renaissance man: actor, musician, craftsman, humorist and scholar. He will be very greatly missed by his loving family: his wife, Cece; daughters, Alina, Elizabeth and Catherine; his sister, Rachel; brother, Daniel; father, Dherran, and extended family. Services will be held at 2:00PM on Saturday, August 2, 2014 at QUATTLEBAUM FUNERAL, CREMATION & EVENT CENTER, 5411 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach, FL 33417.
