JAMES A. "Jim" RIBEIRO SR, 79, HADLEY, long time resident of Granby, MA, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 12, 2019 at Baystate Medical Center with his children by his side. Born September 22, 1939 to the late Adelino & Irene Ribeiro of Holyoke, MA. He was a 1957 graduate of Holyoke High School. A Corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps, Headquarters Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, having graduated in 1959 from Camp LeJeune, NC. Oohrah! An alumni of Western New England College, he graduated with a degree in Accounting in 1971.

He was an avid golfer and lived in Mesa, AZ for many years to enjoy the sport year-round. He was a respected member of the Granby School Committee, Granby Athletic Assoc, a Boy Scout troop leader and an enthusiastic baseball coach.
