James R. McConnell

Date of Death: June 25, 2018

Date of Birth: October 16, 1941


James R McConnell, age 76, of Auburn passed away suddenly on Monday. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Laurie, and his two children, Jeffrey (Catherine) and Jenna (Samuel), his brother Thomas (Anita), and his much loved and cherished grandson Matthew.
Jim was a dedicated member of the St. Phillips church choir and the Knights Of Columbus, where he continued to contribute despite recent health challenges.  He had a lifelong love of aviation with many sky high adventures during his private pilot's lessons.
Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Jim and his family moved to Auburn, ME in 1982, when he joined Phillips Elmet as a technical sales manager.  He later moved on to providing transportation services for those in need through Community Concepts and Androscoggin Home Health.
Always quick with a joke and proud of his Irish heritage, Jim was a loving husband, father, and brother.  He will be dearly missed by his many friends and family across the country.
As Jim would say "I've got a chuckle for ya..." A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, June 29 at 11:30 a.m. At St. Phillip Church, 2365 Turner Road, Auburn. In lieu of flowers, donations in Jim's memory may be made to Knights of Columbus, Council 8742, 4 Washington Street, No. Auburn, ME 04210.
