Obituary for James Hill Coady

December 29, 1936 - June 1, 2019
Norristown, Pennsylvania | Age 82


A golden heart stopped beating on June 1, 2019. James Hill Coady of Norristown passed away peacefully after a courageous battle against cancer. At 82 years old Jim lived every moment of his life to the fullest.

Born on December 29, 1936 in Cleveland, Ohio, Jim was the loving son of the late John and Margaret Coady (nee Hill). Upon graduating Williamsport High School, Jim married his dear friend Martha and their family blossomed. Jim was the devoted father of Scott Coady, Sheryl Coady, James Coady, Jr., Suzie Crandall (John), and Robert Coady, cherished pop of Katie, Alexis, Scotty, and Jillian, great grandfather to Rayanna, Angel, and KJ, devoted brother to the late Jack, Sally, and Robert, and friend to many. Jim had a charming personality and made a special impression on everyone he met.

Jim proudly served his country in the United States Air Force and later went on to work for Memorex Computer Company. He loved to travel, spend time in Ocean City- especially eating ice cream at the Hobby Horse, playing at the casinos, reading the Times Herald at WaWa every morning, and making friends. Most of all his greatest joy was his family and his faithful companion, the late Rusty the dog. He will be deeply missed by all.

Relatives and friends are invited to Jim's Life Celebration on Thursday June 6, 2019 from 6pm to 8pm at Boyd-Horrox-Givnish Life Celebration Home of East Norriton, 200 West Germantown Pike. Interment Private.
