James J. Fallon ’49

Published in the July16, 2008, issue

Jimmy died Sept. 11, 2007, of bone cancer at the age of 83.

He came to Princeton in the Marine V-12 program after service in the Pacific theater. While at Princeton he played on the varsity basketball and golf teams.

Jimmy spent his working career as a salesman, and said he had a talent for showing “prospects and suspects” the reason for buying. He started with National Cash Register as a sales representative. He then was a consultant and manufacturers’ representative with the George May Co. He also was active in the New York Republican Party. After retirement he served as a city commissioner in Beverly Beach, Fla. Jimmy retained a very active interest in sports throughout his life as both a participant and a spectator.

Jimmy is survived by three sons, James, Chris, and Neil; and six grandchildren, who remember him as a man who lived life to the fullest. To them, the class extends its sincere sympathy in their loss.
