James "Jimmy" William Mucherino Jr., beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, died Nov. 9, 2012, at the age of 29.
Born on Nov. 27, 1982, James was known for having a heart of gold and a smile that could light up the room. He could make anyone laugh and he loved being surrounded by family and friends. His passion was horseshoeing, a trade that was passed down through generations. Words cannot describe how amazing he was and what a tremendous loss this is.
He leaves behind both his mother, Jodi Mucherino of Watertown, and father, James Mucherino (and step-mother, Maureen Mucherino) of Woodbury; as well as three sisters, Jessica Mucherino, also of Watertown, Shawna Mucherino of Woodbury, and Kateln Mucherino, of Woodbury; and a nephew, Waylon Greenwood.
He also leaves his grandparents, Ann Mucherino, originally from Oxford, and Charles “Chuck” Woodward from Goshen; uncles, Lewis and Wayne Mucherino; aunts, Wendy and Gary Sega, and Bonnie Macedonia; uncle George and aunt Amy Haray; uncle Danny Haray; uncle Bill and aunt Lolo Yappel; many cousins, and many friends.
He was predeceased by his grandmother, Alice Woodward, and his grandfather, Lewis “Duke” Mucherino. James will be forever in our hearts.
