James M. Arditi, age 65, of Norristown, PA gently passed away in his sleep on February 22, 2023 after a year long battle with heart disease. His peaceful passing was granted by the grace of God for the gentle love and kindness Jim showered on his family and anyone he called friend.
He was born a winter family gift in January 1958, the 4th son of the late Robert F. and Phyllis (Taggart) Arditi.
Jim grew up in rural Skippack attending Perkiomen Valley High School where he thrived on body building and wrestling team competitions imparting his lifelong love of sports.
Jim worked for Thriftway Foods as union truck/forklift operator and delivery specialist later to encounter health challenges that handicapped and cut short his work career. Jim never allowed his disability to interupt his positive outlook and deep love for his family.
He was central to sharing love at family holidays and lively celebrations remembered by his surviving four brothers, Robert N. (Deborah) Arditi, Steve (Sandy) Arditi, Richard D. Arditi, and John F. (Juliet) Arditi; one treasured sister, Gina M. (Bill) Salmon; and his dearest daughter Marie as well as many cherished nieces and nephews.
Services and interment are private.
