On Thursday Feb. 17th, James "Jimmy" Mahoney Kropp passed away at the age of 79 after a long illness.
He is survived by his wife, Margie, his daughter Diana (DJ) Williams and two grandchildren, Charlie and Stella from Danbury, CT. His siblings Carl (Mary) Kropp of Elizaville, NY John Kropp of Rensselaerville, NY, Camellia (Robert) Elliott of Rhinebeck, NY and Margaret (Robert) Martel of Myrtle Beach, SC. He is predeceased by his daughter Linda Marie Kropp, parents Carl and Camellia Kropp, and sister-in-law Carol Kropp.
He was born in Yonkers, NY and spent his formative years in Elizaville, NY. He enjoyed and excelled in his 24-year career with Verizon (NY Tel) as a telephone technician, installer and lineman in Westchester and New York City.
James was especially proud of his country house that he rebuilt so much on his own. He loved the serenity and peacefulness it brought to him and his family. He was an innovator and a craftsman and could fix anything.
A gregarious person, true friend and good neighbor he had a kind word and a joke for everyone. He will be greatly missed by those who knew him and loved him.
A memorial service will be held in the Spring.
