James “Jimmy” DiMaio
James “Jimmy” DiMaio, 56, a resident of Lee County, FL since 1998, passed away Sunday, February 16, 2020. He was born October 21, 1963 in Binghamton, NY and was raised in Ozone Park, in the Borough of Queens, New York City.
Jimmy lived something of an itinerant life, leaving NYC in his late teens for Binghamton, where his sister was attending college. From there, he headed to the Boston area, then Manchester New Hampshire. The family vacationed in Miami Beach every year when Jimmy was young and, always a lover of warm weather and swimming, he eventually relocated to Florida.
Jimmy worked in various aspects of the construction industry, performing both commercial and residential work throughout Florida.
He is survived by his father, Frank DiMaio of Cornwall, NY; son, Anthony (Tony) DiMaio of Cape Coral, FL; and sister, Patricia DiMaio of Princeton, NJ.
Tony’s mother will always keep Jimmy’s memory alive for their son, imparting positive and lighthearted memories. Jimmy may have lost his way many times, but Tony always saw the good in his dad, with unconditional love…. Jimmy will be missed.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his mother, Bernice DiMaio.
No formal services are planned at this time.
Jimmy’s last employment was with Habitat for Humanity in Lee County Florida. Memorial Contributions in memory of James “Jimmy” DiMaio are suggested to this worthy organization. (1228 N. Tamiami Trail, North Fort Myers, FL 33903)
