He was awarded Best Poultry Boy in New Hampshire in 1955 by the NEPPCO. He also had a great love for wildlife and conservation lands. James was a classic car enthusiast, carpenter, and businessman; he was the president of his family’s business, Pitarys Homes Inc. He was a very concerned, thoughtful, caring, lovable person with much compassion for the elderly and was always there to lend a hand.
