James “Jimmy” Fazzone passed from this life on August 6, 2017 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Jimmy was born in Schenectady, New York on December 6, 1952 as the first child of Claudia Dutcher.
After serving in the U.S. Army, Jimmy decided Colorado Springs was the place to be. He loved the weather and the majestic mountains. He met his wife, Kelley, in 1986, and they married in 1988.
Jimmy was unforgettable to everyone he met with his crazy personality. When he walked through the door we all knew he was up to something with his quirky humor. We will all miss him very much.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his mother, Claudia.
He is survived by his loving wife, Kelley (Purling) Fazzone; his siblings, Robert H. (Sue) Dutcher, Anna (George) Dutcher, Alfred D. Dutcher, and Jane (Mark) Loomis; his in-laws, Ernest C. and Connie Purling; and sister-in-law, Tracy Troxell. Jimmy is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and Godchildren, as well as his furry kids, Miss Thea von Schnauzer and Stella.
There will be a Celebration of Life at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, 610 Abbot Lane, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80905.
The mission of the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region is to prevent animal cruelty and neglect, and promote a responsible community where animals are inherently valued and owners are committed to their pets.
