James Edward "Jim" Moriarty

HALLOWELL - James "Jim" Edward Moriarty, 73, of Hallowell, passed away peacefully on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2019 at his home.

Born on June 7, 1945 in Holyoke, Mass., he was the son of the late James Edward Moriarty, who died while serving our country in the military before Jim was born, and the late Katherine (Barrett) Moriarty.

A graduate of Holyoke High School, he attended Kansas State College. A skilled cabinet and furniture maker, Jim was the proud owner and operator of Moriarty Upholstery and Cape Cod Tent Rental of Hyannis, Mass., before moving to Maine in 2002 where he became the Maintenance Coordinator for the K.V. Federal Credit Union.

A resident of Hallowell for the past fifteen years, he previously lived in Hyannis.

Jim was a hardworking, generous man of faith, who had a wonderful, dry sense of humor and a quick wit. He had a great sense of love and pride for his family and their Irish heritage. He was a true artisan woodworker, craftsman, and amateur photographer always ready for that next photo with his camera nearby. He loved both entertaining and bird watching from the deck of his home overlooking the Kennebec River. Jim always enjoyed the company of his many good friends, especially his "FAMILY" from The Liberal Cup, in Hallowell.

Jim is survived by his loving children: James M. Moriarty and his wife, Alicia M. (DeBlois) Moriarty, of North Attleboro, Mass., and their children, Evan J. Moriarty, Aaron A. Moriarty, and Sophia E. Moriarty; Jennifer A. (Moriarty) Connolly and her husband, Bryan W. Connolly of Bethany, Conn., and their children, Brett W. Connolly and Megan B. Connolly; and Laura K. Moriarty of Rumford, her children, Ash R. Barry, Liam R. Barry and their father, Robert P. Barry. He was the dear brother of William "Bill" Moriarty and his wife, Jan of Louisville, Ky.; and Elizabeth "Betsy" Greaney and her husband, Eugene "Gino" of South Hadley, Mass. Jim leaves numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and an extended family.
