I will always be grateful for meeting Brother James and for the many opportunities he gave me to work together with our youth, young adults and campus ministries. Brother had a vision ... God´s vision ... not a vision that was formed by one´s own ego, but a vision formed by God´s love and compassion. His was a vision to evangelize one person at a time ... not through words but through acts of service. I am grateful for the years I worked with Brother in the Diocese of Rockville Centre and...

One of the most beautiful human beings I have ever known. Rest in the loving arms of Jesus Christ dear brother. A true friend to all who had the honor to make his acquaintance.

I love you Bro James. 45 years is a long time to be friends. You will always be my brother and friend in Jesus. I will always smile as I hear your name. I have a lifetime of wonderful memories of service to others we did together and laughter and joy. You are a special human being and some of Gods best work. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

I am saddened to hear of James´s passing. We were classmates at Immaculate Heart of Mary School from 1st grade through graduation in 1960. We were also in the same altar boy group for many years. Our paths went in other directions until our 50 th class anniversary in 2010, which was attended by about 15 graduated. "Keep smiling", James.
