James spent his career as a landscaper, doing what he loved. He played baseball for John Jay High School in Hopewell Junction and then went on to play at Temple University. He also enjoyed coaching his sons in Little League, and his family founded the Hopewell Ions, a division of the American Legion Rookie League. In addition, James was an avid fan of the NY Mets and NY Jets and was a proud member of the United States Chess Federation. Most of all, James was loved by all who knew him.

We are so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. He spent many a summer playing baseball with my husband, William Meybohm. He was a great pitcher and ball player in general and loads of fun. May he rest in peace.
