James D. Fitpatrick

March 30, 1967 – October 9, 2019

Roxbury Township, James Desmond Fitzpatrick passed away Oct 9th after struggling with a long and recurring disease.  James is survived by his 3 children, Haley (20), Stephanie (18) and Brian (16) and their mother and his ex-wife, Lynette Albanese of Allamuchy. He is also survived by his mother, Carol Fitzpatrick of Succasunna, his brother Jack of Stevensville, MD, his brother Gene of Denville and pre-deceased by his father Donald Fitzpatrick also from Succasunna.  As expected, James’ children are his greatest legacy.


Despite challenges in later years, James was notorious for his great willingness and charming ability to talk to anyone he met.  Likable and approachable, James had a previous career in sales with both Bell Atlantic and a Medical device company.  He treasured holding a pole and throwing a line in any body of water to fish whenever he could. Born in New York City, his parents moved out to the suburbs of Succasunna where James grew up and attended St. Therese School and Roxbury High School.  He was a member of the St. Therese Council of the Knights of Columbus.
