Known as Muldoon to many, Jim was an avid sports fan; from playing golf to rooting for his favorite teams, the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Orioles. He was a motorcycle enthusiast and enjoyed rides with his friends through the Blue Ridge Mountains, feeling one with the outdoors. Jim lived for moments that turned into a great story. He loved to make people laugh, always ready with a joke or a one liner. He cherished gathering for holidays, making every moment special from playing Santa to hiding Easter eggs, but most of all celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Being a restaurant owner, Jim was known for his delicious food, especially his famous soups. Always the entertainer, Jim sang and played guitar. He enjoyed playing games – cards, crosswords, sudoku, puzzles and riddles.
He loved life, but most of all he loved his family.
