James John Anthony Pizelo
James (Jim)(Pappy) was born Sept 8, 1943 in Spokane; he was the son of Phil and Ann (Ferraro). He passed away peacefully, Saturday December 31, 2016 at Deaconess Hospital. He is survived by his eldest sister Ann, older brother Angelo, his soul-mate Chris Manos and his children whom he loved and cherished, James, Yvette, Jesse and Andy. He graduated from Gonzaga Preparatory School in 1962. He later worked at Aim's IGA grocery store and eventually Produce Supply Co., where he worked for nearly 40 years as a produce salesman. Known as Pappy to his grandsons—RJ, Jakob, Dominic, Landon and Gabriel— Jim could be found in his spare time attending their various events and activities. He enjoyed working in his immaculate yard of which he was so proud. Ultimately his true passion was his animals on which he doted and pampered. He leaves behind three dogs, Chloe, Pedro, Pablo and three cats, Sequoia, Angel and Kool-Aid. Jim was an amazing Father and loved one who always put his family before himself. He will be remembered for his love, compassion and devotion. He was a sweet beautiful soul. Come celebrate his life with us on Friday, January 6, 2017 at 10 AM at St. Joseph's Church, 1503 W Dean Ave, Spokane, WA.
