James DelGiorno

James DelGiorno of Mattituck, aged 90, passed away on Jan. 22, 2022. 

He was the much-loved husband of Patricia, dear brother of Donald, and loving uncle of his many nieces and nephews. 

Jim was a proud member of the Marine Corps and a Korean War veteran. His family and friends remember his quick wit and readiness to always lend a hand. 

A passionate fisherman, Jim spent almost every day surfcasting off North Fork beaches. His fishing pals called him T-Shirt Jimmy, owing to his signature beach outfit of a white T-shirt and khaki pants. The name took hold and it became his moniker up and down the North Fork. So T-Shirt Jimmy, may you cast out where the birds are always working and the tide is always right.

The family will receive visitors Monday, Jan. 31 [updated information], from 2 to 4 p.m. at DeFriest-Grattan Funeral Home in Mattituck.
