So sad to hear of Jimmy's passing. He worked for my father Donald for many years and was always so nice to me. He had such patience with me - as a little kid, I would try to hang out with them at the work sites and he made room for me! Rest in Peace! Donna

I have fond memories of Jimmy way back to Reading Little League Baseball (Red Sox, circa 60-62) and then in high school riding around town with Richie Dyment, Larry MacElhiney and Jimmy. One of a kind athlete and personality.

Condolences to all the Kiley's .

Jimmy was my second job I ever had after high school. I'm still using the skills he taught me today from 1980. RIP
