Prior to retirement, James was a United States Marine for 22 years, serving during the Korean and Vietnam Wars.  Even though he retired after many years of service to his country, James would always say “once a Marine, always a Marine.”  After retirement, he went on to work for Ford in their warehouse in Pennsauken for many years and then drove a school bus for the Pennsauken Schools.  James was also involved with the Pennsauken High School Marching Band Booster Association and a Eucharistic Minister at St. Cecilia Church.
