James R. MacMichael Jr. age 58, of East Greenwich Twp. formerly of West Deptford Twp. passed away Thursday, June 4, 2020. Born in Woodbury, he was a member of the Boilermakers local 28 Brotherhood and past graduate of Clearview HS class of 79. Growing up Jim played football and baseball for the Sewell Boys Club and Babe Ruth league where he was known as a " no hitter pitcher". He continued his sports throughout HS. He loved his Philly sports teams and was ecstatic when his beloved Eagles won the Superbowl LII.

He was an avid reader of history and science. He could talk for endless hours about anything and everything. His favorite holiday was Christmas. He enjoyed decorating his home with 3 trees and setting up his Christmas village. In his earlier years he enjoyed dressing up as Santa for the kids. Whether from the beach, boat or lake he also loved fishing.But most of all he loved taking long drives in his convertible Mercedes down the shore watching the sunrise or sunset.

Jim is survived by his son, James R. MacMichael III, his mother, Linda L. MacMichael (Tuel) and two sisters, Debra MacMichael (Joe) and Kathy MacMichael-Shute (Tom). He is also survived by his loving companion, Corinna Wonsetler. Jim was predeceased by his father, James R. MacMichael, Sr. and his faithful dog, Baxter.

May you find comfort in God’s promise at Revelation 21:3,4. “God himself will
be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be
no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things
have passed away.”.

Jimmy, you were always so happy, full of life and just a great friend. I remember you showing me all your monster models, when we were kids. Living next door to you and your family was always so much fun. Love and Condolences from Janice and the Reim Family

Whenever our family mentioned Jim you had to be specific. There was Big Jim "Jim's father" , Jimmy which is Jim and Little Jim ,Jim's son. Could get confusing. I am Jim's mothers cousin. Many years ago Jim's dad and I worked together as Boilermakers. We also would share a motel room to save money when on the road. Many hours we talked about our families. Big Jim would say "I don't know what to do about my son." (which was Jimmy") He doesn't know what he wants to do and he is in constant motion. Well, Jim didn't know either so he became a boilermaker. Jim wasn't afraid to work, but he always found time for the family. The last time I saw Jim was at my brothers house for a BBQ. Jimmy came with his son "Little Jimmy". He was so proud to have him there.God Bless you Jim. Rest in Peace, no more meds and anguish. Gone too soon . You will be missed.
