  1. I remember James as a sweet, gentle man. I worked with him in my parents’ Quality Pastry Shop in the mid 1970’s in Beckley. We would always discuss sports. His way to communicate was to spread baking flour on the large table that he prepared breads and pastries on and spell out his thoughts. May God Bless Him – I wish I could have seen him before he moved on!

    Along with my older brothers Larry and Michael, . I worked with him in my parents’ Quality Pastry Shop in the mid-to-late 1970’s in Beckley.

    James was such a kind and patient man. He conducted himself with dignity, which was a great example to me as a 14-18 year old. Please know that James and your family will be in my prayers.

  3. James was more than just an employee of our family bakery, He was considered a member of our family by our grandparents, Theresa and Lorenzo Torlone and parents Jeannette and Anthony J. ( Tony) Misiti, Jr. Much love to all of you.

  4. My deepest condolences goes to his family members & wife Hollie. Remember him when I was a student at WVSD
