Obituary for James D. Peracchino
PERACCHINO - James D. "Jimbo," 56, Sidman, died April 5, 2015, at Memorial Medical Center. Born March 2, 1959, son of James "Pooch" and Amelia "Miltch" (Kerch) Peracchino. Preceded in death by father; father-in-law, Lawrence Albertelli; and son, Tony Peracchino. Survived by wonderful mother; mother-in-law, Margaret "Marge" Albertelli; high school sweetheart and wife of 32 years, Lisa Peracchino (Albertelli), whom he married Aug. 28, 1982; daughter and "best co-worker," Bethany, and significant other ("son-non-in-law"), Derek Partsch; son, and forever hunting and fishing companion, Brock, and girlfriend, Cassie Miller; brothers and best friends, Craig, St. Michael; and Brian, Salix. Also survived by brothers and sisters-in-law, Gary Speicher, Michael and Jane Albertelli, Daniel and Sheila Mickus, Lawrence and Pebble Albertelli and Robert and Tammy Albertelli; and nieces and nephews that he adored, Jackie Peracchino; Shannon "Peekers" Susko (Peracchino), married to Jim Susko; Gabrielle Mickus, and significant other and forever family, Josh Minor; Danielle Mickus "Chunk"; Taylor Albertelli; and Meghan and Nicholas Albertelli. He also was a great-uncle to Isabella Peracchino. A special place will also always be kept for wonderful friends he made along the way that provided the family with necessary strength, such as Denise "Nise" and Scott "Buddha" Marks; and softball coaching companions, Carl Teeter, Jeff Bicko, Rick Conrad, Rich Leonard, Todd Ickes, Pearl Pcola, Phil Ponzurick, Jake Casale and forever Cobras, Sara Minor (Plummer) and Elyse Pcola. "Jimbo" worked for more than 30 years at Galliker's Dairy. While he enjoyed his job and his family there, everyone knew his true passion was softball. Jimbo was a coach for Cambria County Cobras, Penn Cambria High School and Mount Aloysius College. His fondest memories and greatest stories always involved a travel tournament, softball game or any time he was around "his girls." In addition to a lifetime of coaching, he and his daughter, Bethany, conducted pitching lessons in South Fork over the past several years. With between 60 and 70 girls each year, he touched so many lives that there are too many to name, although each one equally as important. His pride came from coaching and watching his girls excel at every level of play, or life, they were at. He will be forever loved and missed. He was a coach and inspiration to so many, but a father and hero to two. Family will receive friends from 2 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at Matthew R. Decort Funeral Home & Cremation Services Inc., Portage, where funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday. Committal to follow at St. Michaels Cemetery in St. Michael. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial contributions be made at the funeral home in Jim's name.��
