JAMES J., 29, died suddenly on March 30, 2014. He is survived by his mother, Donna Lynn (Holmes) Hart, father James J. Hart, Sr (Dona); Dear brother of Brooke Lynn Hart and Donald Charles Hart; also survived by grandmother Ann Holmes and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends and his dog Braddock. He is preceded in death by his maternal grandfather Donald Holmes and paternal grand-parents James A and Lucille M. Hart. Jimmy for those who new him and those who would come to know him was a wonderful, kind, caring person. He liked people and they just gravitated to him. When he moved away to college his look on the world around him and how he was going to fit in started to change and he was out to leave a footprint of his own on the world. Jimmy went to Spain to walk the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, a religious pilgrimage. This journey would awaken him to a new world and new people around him. His trip to Southeast Asia was another trip that would leave a lasting impression. He stated that " I have found paradise". As his favorite author wrote and Jimmy lived by: "The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a common place thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars. --Jack Kerouac
"MAD TO LIVE". Family and Friends are invited to visit Saturday April 12 from 9:30 A.M. 12 Noon at Church of the Incarnation, 240 Main St. Mantua, NJ 08051. Mass of Christian Burial to be held at 12 Noon.www.smithfhmantua.com
