He recently moved with the Hydock family to Abington Township, Mongomery County PA. James “Jim” was a great dad and a wonderful Pop-Pop to all. He was always open, and friendly. He prided himself as the one that you can always count on, no matter what you needed. He had a soft heart and a ready smile. Happy, go lucky spirit that you could get lost in. His advice was second to none and you received it regardless but with tenderness. He deeply appreciated life but refused to live only for himself and selflessly gave all he could to others. He will be sorely missed.
