Rev.  James V. D'Amico Obituary
Rev. James Vincent D'Amico, 93, has gone to be with the Lord. He joined his precious wife, Grace, May 4, 2018. Rev. Jim was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and obtained his degrees from the New York Bible Institute, Columbia University, Juniata College and Bethany seminary of Chicago, Ill. He served as pastor to Churches of the Brethren in Brooklyn, N.Y., Philadelphia, York, Greensburg, Montgomery, Ligonier and Mt. Pleasant, for nearly 60 years. Pastoring the many people of his congregations through their times of good and bad experiences was most important to his ministry. Through his efforts of inclusion, many children and adults were able to call the members of the church their family. Rev. Jim served anyone who needed guidance and spiritual support. He was a man of service, regularly called upon by hospitals, prisons and numerous other organizations to support those in need. He always acted without hesitation for those in need. Jim's family (which was very inclusive), enjoyed his love, support and admiration. His beloved seven siblings are deceased. He is survived by his four children, Debbie Beatty (Doug), James D'Amico Jr. (Lisa), Frank D'Amico (Kim) and Joseph D'Amico (Jill); 11 grandchildren, Ann Biswas (Rij), Jill Pruszynski (Joe), Ryan Beatty (Kim), Brandon and Amanda D'Amico, Faith, Lauren and Peter D'Amico and Emily, Alex and Nick D'Amico. Joining them are seven great-grandchildren, AJ and Anjuli, Quen and Solena, RJ and Tyler and Tonia. He shared his love with many nieces, nephews and cousins. The family would like to thank his caregiver, Mary Ann, and The Jewish Home of Greater Harrisburg for their loving care.
Viewing will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at SALOOM-REGA FUNERAL SERVICE, 730 W. Main St., Mt Pleasant, and from 9 to 10 a.m. at the Mt. Joy Church of the Brethren, 494 E. Main St., Mt. Pleasant, where services will be held at 10 a.m.
Rev. D'Amico's spirituality was supported and fostered through the Church of the Brethren at Juniata College. Should you wish, in lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to the college ministry. Checks can be mailed to the Office of Development, Juniata College, 1700 Moore St., Huntingdon PA 17652. Please visit Jim's online memorial at www.saloom-rega.com. to sign the condolence guestbook.
