James Maroney of Richmond, VA went home to be with the Lord on September 11, 2020. He was born May 14, 1945 to Fernell and Jim Maroney.
James was educated in the Richmond Public school system and retired from Phillip Morris after 32 years of dedicated service. He was preceded in death by his parents Fernell & Jim Maroney, three brothers Milton, Leon, and Linwood.
James never met a stranger and was truly a people person. He could bring out the best of anyone with his infectious smile and engaging laugh. James loved his family and was the life of the party at all family functions. He loved to see everyone enjoying themselves and had all the hits on rotation on his stereo. He especially adored and doted on his Grands who affectionately called him Papa. James was the REAL DEAL and was well respected by many.
He is survived by his devoted wife of 27 years Linda; daughters, Camillia Maroney, Tonya Harrington (Gene), Rachelle Johnson (Wayne); son, Raymond Davis III (Trisha); grandchildren, Joshua Cotto, Sydney Navarrete (Hans), Alana Harrington, Ryan Davis & Lyndsey Davis; great granddaughters, Syler & Eden Navarrete; brothers, Carroll, Raymond, Frederick & Sila; sisters Fernell & Elizabeth; sisters-in-law, Shari Burt, Wanda Scott, Charlene Green; brother-in-law Steve Green; and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives & friends.
There will never be another James Maroney and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Monday, September 21, 2020 at Affinity Funeral Service Mechanicsville Chapel, 8074 Mechanicsville Tnpk, Mechanicsville Va 23111.
