James Robert Rafferty Obituary
December 19, 1930 - May 18, 2016 Take my heart, take my hand, hold on tight, never let go. My husband, James Robert Rafferty, let go on May 18, 2016 in Newport Beach after a long, brave battle with pulmonary fibrosis. Jim was born December 19, 1930 to Henry and Katherine Rafferty in Philadelphia, the third of seven siblings. He served in the Navy, in the Korean conflict and settled in California at the end of his service. He worked with United Tent and Awning, Unitex and Elizabeth Webbing Mills. He was an honored life member of IFAI. Jim is survived by his wife Toni; first wife Ursula; brother Jack (Shirley); sister Nancy (Jerry); sister Barbara and too many nieces and nephews to count/great- and great-great. We will miss him terribly. His laughter and smile will always be with us as will all the jokes. I will forever miss his hand in mine/rest in peace. Services will be held at St. Vincent dePaul Catholic Church in Huntington Beach, June 29, 2016 at 8:30 a.m. Interment will be at Good Shepherd Cemetery in Huntington Beach following the ceremony.
