Obituary

Hennigan
James J. Sr., passed away Monday, July 24th ,at the age of 76. Born in Scranton, PA, Jim graduated from West Scranton High School. A Levittown, PA resident for over 50 years, Jim was a member of St. Joseph the Worker Church and its Men's Social Club, and currently a member of St. Francis Cabrini Catholic Church. He also worked for ABB, formerly Fischer and Porter Co., of Warminster for over 35 years. Jim enjoyed game shows like "Family Feud" and "Deal or No Deal" but his biggest passion throughout most of his life was bowling. In 1974, Jim joined the Lower Bucks County Mens Bowling Association, became president of the association in 1980, was voted a life time member in 1982, and in 1992 was inducted into the prestigious LBCMBA Hall of Fame. In 1978, Jim also joined the Pennsylvania State Bowling Association (PSBA) and became its president in 1992. Despite his suffering, Jim always kept his sense of humor. While sick, Jim affectionately named his IV medication pump Sally and loved to torment his family with his "call bell" to summon them to his side.

Jim is survived by his beloved wife of 53 years, Jean (nee Duzen), his adoring children James Jr., John (Jane), Joe (Sharon), Janine (Fred) Price, Julie Hennigan (Dave Foster), and his cherished grandchildren Bryan, Zack, Kate, Jessica, Stephanie, Shaina, James, Evan, Alyssa, Freddy, Nick, and Johnny. He is also survived his siblings Ann Mancuso and Jerry Hennigan.
