The Times Herald (Norristown, PA) - - OBITUARIES -

James Peter Car­da­mone, age 90 years, of Con­shohocken, passed away on Mon­day even­ing, May 14, 2018, while sur­rounded by his fam­ily and close friends.

He is the son of the late Joseph and Rose Car­da­mone and the beloved hus­band of the late Emily Car­da­mone.

He is sur­vived by his daugh­ters, Les­lie Carol Schae­fer (Adolph) and Laurie Ann Ama­bile; his grand­chil­dren, Senta Gabrielle Clarke (Kevin), Adrian James Mau­rer (Mar­got) and Fran­cis Alexan­der Ama­bile; and by his sis­ters, Elaine Jean DiCicco (Joseph) and Bar­bara Ann Marino (Peter), as well as nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews.

Along with his wife and par­ents, Jimmy was pre­ceded in death by his brother, Rus­sell Car­da­mone; and sis­ter, Josephine Colanzi.

Jimmy lived in Con­shohocken his en­tire life and he loved the town and town’s peo­ple. He had many di­verse friends, both young and old.

He was a mu­si­cian and Jazz afi­cionado and he in­tro­duced Jazz mu­sic to many of his young friends. Jimmy played the Alto Sax­o­phone in his ear­lier years and then while in the Army he switched to the up­right base, which since then be­came his in­stru­ment of choice.

James was in the Army dur­ing the Korean War and he played mu­sic to en­ter­tain the troops. He met Emily El­iz­a­beth Weller (de­ceased Au­gust 1995) from Al­toona, Penn­syl­va­nia while he was play­ing a gig nearby.

He loved Frank Si­na­tra and he passed away on a breezy spring night while lis­ten­ing to Frank sing; this on the same day Frank died, 20 years ago.

We will all miss Jimmy.
