James F. Christy Jr.

In memory of James F. Christy Jr., who passed away on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. He was 66 years old. Jimmy, as his friends called him, was full of life and had a smile and laugh that was unforgettable. He made his career at Doors Direct and ran that business with a passion. If you met Jimmy you would never forget how at ease he made one feel. Jimmy lived his life for his family. He is survived by his beloved wife of 31 years Ines Christy and his devoted children, Annmarie Christy, Carlos M. Rivera and his wife Ramona, Mabel Rivera and her husband Erik. The only thing he ever took seriously was loving his grandchildren and great grandchildren; Kerina Rivera and her children Sarai, Maddox and Hendrix, JuanCarlos, Brandon, Vivian, Sebastian, Kaylee, Roman, Xavier, Addison and Penelope. He is also survived by his siblings Joyce Christy, Elizabeth Christy and Thomas Christy. James was one in a million and he will never be forgotten. He taught everyone around him how to be better. May he Rest In Peace and be kept alive in everyone's memory through the many stories and countless memories we have of him. Til we meet again.

I have know Jimmy for over 50 yrs. He was always a car fanatic. A damn good mechanic. His infectious laugh made everyone comfortable. To know Jimmy was to have a friend for life. His work ethics made doors direct the success it has become. Drag racing at Avenue P in Newark, working on his Blue Chevelle. Water skiing on Lake Hopatcong, hanging out at Carvelle are only some of our fond memories we all shared. During the Disco days Jim became quite an accomplished dancer, Second only to John Travolta. We shared many a pizza at Star Tavern. Family was the most important thing in Jim’s life. His love for his blended family was quite evident. He loved his frequent visits to Puerto Rico and seemed rejuvenated when he returned. RIP my dear friend.
