Jimmy was a 1966 graduate of Greenwich Central School, and later went on to achieve his Associates Degree from SUNY Cobleskill.

He enjoyed buying and selling antiques and had an extensive collection of milk bottles. After his retirement he enjoyed taking day trips on his Harley or in his truck, to the Adirondacks and New Hampshire. Jimmy wasn’t one to sit still, he always seemed to be on the go.
