Memories and Condolences

Carol and Tammaro family,

I remember our youthful middle school days of having the pleasure of playing for Mayfair AC on three Championship Basketball Teams with Jimmy Tammaro; at Jardell Recreation Center, Northeast Boy's Club and Boathouse Row. Jimmy was very athletic with fast hands and could dribble and shoot a basketball with both right and left hands. Always a pleasant personality he was the heart and soul of the basketball team.

While the physical loss of a loved one is very sad, you never lose the memories and the values that Jimmy passed along to others. And the nice thing is that we can pass along these same memories and values, yet still keep them for yourself.

What a pleasant feeling !

Jimmy Tammaro left his footprint on my heart!

Our Love to all in the Tommaro family !

Carol and family: Tom Garberina called me about Jim,s passing. My condolences We have not had much contact over the years but we good times together playing basketball over our grammar and high school days. He was a great guy also he used to cut my hair way back.

My deepest sympathy & thoughts to the whole family. I feel blessed to have had Uncle Jimmy & the home/family he built be such a big part of my childhood. I hope he knows now how truly grateful I am that he helped & supported me during that time when I needed it most. It makes my heart light that the barber shop was mentioned above as well as the library he took us all to at times to see movies. Although I know you are all shedding tears at the loss of this great man, husband & father, please be happy in the thought that he is now with so many that love him as well.

Hugs to you all & Aunt Carol you are a remarkable woman.
stay strong & love,

Dear Tammaro Family,

Thinking of you at this Difficult time. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

You hold a special place in my heart. No one can take that from me. Dad,you were a great father, friend,and husband.
Dad, you were a fighter for years because you loved us all so much. We didn't want to see you go but you were tired. We all gained another special angle to watch over us.
Dad, I love You!

your little one,
