Memories and Condolences

In my prayers. God Bless.

I am truly sorry for the loss of your son, brother, family member, teammate and friend, Jim "Squib" DiGiovanni. I first met Jim when I played basketball against him in the CYO League when he played for St. Jerome's. I later became a teammate of Jim's at Father Judge HS. I was a Senior when Jim came in as a Junior. He was really talented, determined and strong and was an awesome competitor and great teammate. I was so happy to see Squib and his teammates win the City Title the next year in 1975. I would see Jim later from time to time at sporting events and social gatherings. He was a great guy and terrific friend. I feel very sad that he has passed away so unexpectedly. May you all be comforted by the great memories you have of Squib. God Bless Him and may he Rest in Peace.

Many people will walk in and out of your life but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart. Jimmy is leaving many footprints and will be missed by all xoxoxo
