Obituary of James J. Lennon Jr.
James Joseph Lennon Jr., best known as Jim, entered into eternal rest on Sunday, September 18, 2022, at St. Luke’s Montefiore Hospital in Newburgh, NY. Jim was born October 2, 1949, in New Rochelle, NY, to the late James Joseph Lennon Sr. and Elinor Ryder Lennon. Jim is survived by his college sweetheart, who became his wife of 46 years, Helene Lennon (Bobbie), daughter Elizabeth Brady-Mires and her husband Adam Mires, son Thomas Lennon and his wife Lorianne Lennon, son Daniel Lennon and his wife Bridget Lennon, and daughter Ellen Vasquez and her husband Jose Vasquez, along with his 9 grandchildren: Patrick Lennon, Dylan Brady, Keira Lennon, Reagan Brady, Niamh Lennon, Thomas Lennon, Brendan Brady, Colin Lennon, and Julian James Vasquez. Jim is also survived by his siblings, sister Maryellen and her husband Richard Owen, sister Suzanne Lennon, sister Eileen and her husband Gary Austin, and brother Timothy and his wife Peggy Lennon, and by his sister-in-law Margaret Fenn, as well as many nieces and nephews. Jim is predeceased by his son Patrick Francis Lennon, his parents Elinor and James Lennon, his mother-in-law Helen Nicholson, sisters-in-law Jean Baptiste Nicholson and Marie Guiney, brothers- in-law David Guiney and Jack Fenn, and dear friends Donald Parker and Bernard Brady. Jim spent his life as a servant of the Lord. He worked for 26 years serving the community as a police officer with Metro North until he retired in 2000. Jim served his country and was honorably discharged in 1978 from New York Army Reserves National Guard as an MP. He coached and served on the board for New Windsor Little League for 15 years. Jim was a selfless man. He would never hesitate to help someone in need. To honor Jim’s memory, the family asks that you chose kindness and love and help someone less fortunate with a selfless act. Jim’s family would like to thank his physician Dr. Bambino, the New Windsor Volunteer Ambulance Corp and the New Windsor Police Department, as well as the amazing staff at St. Luke’s. We especially want to thank his nurse Nadine G. for caring for Jim and his family through this difficult time.
