Obituary: James P. Marra Jr.

G ranville, NY – James Patrick Marra, Jr passed away on Monday, February 11, 2019 at Glens Falls Hospital with his family by his side.

James was born in Schenectady, NY on May 4, 1955, the son of the late James Patrick and Ethel Jane (Winchell) Marra, Sr.

He was the first of six children. He was very proud that he and his siblings maintained a close bond throughout their lives.

James was a hard worker. He was a talented carpenter and skilled woodsman. He loved being surrounded by close family and friends. He was a gentleman with a big heart and a kind soul. James was a soft-spoken father who raised his sons with a strong hand that taught them the meaning of love, instilled a strong work ethic, and the importance of family values. For this his sons were grateful.

He was predeceased by his parents, sister Robin Horton, grandson Tanner Marra, nephews Jeremy Jones and Charlie (Chuckie) Marra. He is survived by his loving sons: James Patrick III and his children Kendra and James Patrick Marra IV and Steven Francis Marra and his wife Erin and his children Aleesha, Rebecca and Steven Marra.
