Sunrise 8/2/1936 to Sunset 12/9/2020

James Francis “Jim” Mohan, aka Jimmy Bones, went home to be in the arms of his Lord on December 9, 2020 after living a medical miracle life. He was indeed the BIONIC MAN. He passed at home in Lewisville, Texas with his family at his bedside. He was 84 years old.

Born in Newark, raised in Vailsburg, he attended West Side High School. He married and lived in Parsippany, New Jersey for 33 years and Hackettstown for 15 years.

He was in the Naval Reserve, was a jeweler, photographer, advertising salesman and he drove a school bus in Budd Lake in his retired years.

Jim leaves his high school sweetheart and best friend and wife of 63 years Marge Legge, his two daughters Audrey Golden Boisvert (deceased), Margie Sappio (Donald) of Poconos and his son Jimmy Mohan (Cindy) of Lewisville, Texas. His six grandchildren, Major John Golden (Erika) of Las Vegas, Liza Golden Bhojwani (Karan) of Mumbai India, Nick Sappio (Amber) E. Stroudsburg, Anthony Sappio (Katie) of Newton, David Boisvert of Budd Lake and Marie Mohan of Lewisville Texas. His two great-grandchildren River Wild Bhojwani of Mumbai India and Joanna Aubrey Sappio of E. Stroudsburg.

Jim had spontaneous wit, the greatest blue eyes and a head of white hair that caught your attention. He was a Rotary, Knights of Columbus Unico, a member of the Parsippany Booster Club, Chamber of Commerce, President of New Jersey Transplant and was head usher at 10:30 Mass at St. Peter’s Church, Parsippany.

Special thanks to Dr. Dorian Wilson (UMDNJ) transplant surgeon for 21 years of life with a new liver, Michelle Bjornberg, physical therapist who encouraged him to never give up and Sister Sylvia Berzinski his Guardian Angel.

Services will follow at a date to be announced.
