My sincere condolences to the Altonji family. The late Edmond, one of Jim's brothers, was married to my mother's younger sister, Doris Merhige Altonji.
I am really sorry to here about my brother Jim's death. Our best wishes and condolences go out to you Arlene at this difficult time. We are thinking of you and you're in our prayers. Jim was a wonderful, holy and deeply spiritual man. I loved working with him and so glad he mentored me in my early years as a deacon. We will miss him dearly, he was more than just a deacon to us but a dear friend as you are too. We know he is still with us. With all our Love, Bev and Joe
We send out our love to you Arlene and our deepest sympathy, Jim was a truly wonderful man and loved and walked his Faith, I pray as your family shares his memory it will be with smiles

Arlene I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I always loved chatting with the two of you. Jim was so kind. His faith was obvious to all. He truly walked with God.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
So very sorry for your loss. Jim was a lovely person, always willing to take a moment to talk with you - in a store, in Church, anywhere. When my brother was in the hospital, and we went to visit, we were so surprised to see Jim in the next bed!! We had several great visits with them, which included Jim's many wonderful family members. We couldn't help but feel peace in our hearts, even though my brother had a serious condition, just knowing that Jim was his "room mate" --- certainly a sign that God was with us. You will be missed, Jim. Our deepest condolences, Anthony & Carol Gabriellini
Dear Arlene and Family, I remember Deacon Jim as a kind and gentle man who shared his faith and lived his faith in so many ways. He was an important part of St Joseph's parish and will be missed. Although it was years ago I was also happy to work with Deacon Jim in ministry. God bless you family may you find peace in your memoires and your faith.
Peace, Beth Rivalsi
Dear Jim, I will miss you forever, your kindness and great sense of humor was wonderful. And as a Deacon you were one of the best. I could always count on you to come into Religious Ed and talk to the children for me. Thank you and God Bless
I am truly heart broken with the loss of Dad. Heaven received a truly humble, beautiful, loving soul. The night sky will be brightened by his star. The entire family has always been in my heart and prayers since 1975. Much Love Barbara
So sorry for your loss! Deacon Jim was a lovely man!
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
