Jim Buccellato

March 25, 1930 ~ September 2, 2022 (age 92)


Jim Buccellato died September 2, 2022, surrounded by family, after a long illness, at age 92.  He was the 10th of 11 children.

Following high school, Jim joined the U.S. Coast Guard, worked for the U.S. Steel Mill, then was employed as a truck driver for Kaiser Sand & Gravel, Safeway, and Paul’s Trucking of Napa.

He enjoyed participating in sports, including:  softball, basketball, bocce ball, and water skiing.  Jim was still able to bare-foot waterski into his late 60’s.  He taught a great many nieces and nephews to also waterski, a gift they cherish still to this day.  He was passionate about family and friends and enjoyed the big gatherings where delicious food was the centerpiece.  The fond memories we shared with him will live in our hearts forever.

Jim was predeceased by his parents, in-laws, beloved daughter, Gina, 10 siblings and their spouses, many nieces, nephews and friends.

He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Lois; his children, Debbie (John), Vince and Steve; grandchildren, James, Katrina, Karli, Mia and Santino; great grandchildren, Kinsley and Enodena.

Special thanks to Collabria Care’s Amanda, Melissa, Steve, Jackie, Alison, Katherine and Schanell.

Rest In Peace now, dad.  We love you so much.
