James “Jim” Davies passed away early January 1st with family by his side after a bravely-fought battle with Metabolic Encephalopathy secondary to Early Onset Dementia.

Jim was a natural-born athlete and enjoyed many sports including hockey and baseball where he played on competitive adult leagues.  He was a devoted New York Yankees fan.

Perhaps his greatest joy was riding motorcycles.  Jim loved his Harley Davidson bike and took pleasure in a sunny day of riding.
