Jim was born in New Brunswick and lived in Edison before coming to the Jersey Shore in 1971. At the shore, he lived in Normandy Beach before moving to Point Pleasant in 1981.

A loving husband and great protector, who always had a beautiful smile for his wife. He enjoyed spending time at home and you could always see him with a hammer in his hand, on a ladder or in his garage/workshop fixing something. His other pride was tending to his garden, where he produced a abundance of tomatoes and garden vegetables and enjoyed sharing his crop.

Some of his happiest memories were spending time with his nieces and nephews and was a very proud uncle. Lastly, one of favorite enjoyments was dog sitting “Coco”. He will truly will be missed by his family, friends and especially his loving wife and soulmate.

He was predeceased by his parents, Rosario and Helen Calamoneri; and by his beloved niece, Kylie Pinheiro.
