Mary...I just came across this obituary regarding Jim. I am so totally taken back as my husband, Robert G. Bruce, also passed away on February 14, 2016! Robert passed after receiving the information that he had cancer only 30 days before. We both totally enjoyed our friendship with both of you . Take care.

I just happened to come across this sad news. Jim Carvino worked with my Dad and was one of his best friends "on the job" (NYPD). As I recall, they were almost like brothers. Years later my parents visited he and Mary in Boise, and I drove my family up from Las Vegas to join them. It was amazing how he had adapted to country life. He took a couple of frozen ducks out of the freezer and took us out to the middle of nowhere for a demonstration of his dogs' fetching prowess. Notwithstanding his undoubted status as a NYC kid, it seemed as if he had found his true home. My, father also a Captain, was VERY fond of Jim Now they are both gone, hopefully to a better place where two old cops can catch up with their seemingly endless stories of the good old days. RIP Mr. Carvino

I first knew Jim as a dad, when I coached Glenn's grade school baseball team. Not even sure if I knew he was the Chief of Police back then. Chief Carvino did hire me in 1978 and promoted me to sergeant in 1984 before he moved to The Capitol Police. Chief Carvino was passionate about life, his family and police work. He could very demanding but always supported you if you worked hard, even when you screwed up. He taught me how policing was a profession, not a job.

Jim was strong and determined but very engaging. I can visualize how his eyes would light up, with a great smile when something good happened, at work or to someone he cared for. I was a better police officer and man with Jim in my life.
