James ďJimĒ John Greco of Atlanta GA died at Shepherd Center, surrounded by his family on June 21, 2017. He was 74 years old. Jim is survived by his wife of 51 years, Maureen; his sons Jim and Matt and their wives LeighAnn and Juliet and his five grandchildren Anna, Eliza, Colby, Ryan, and Matthew of Atlanta GA. Jim is also survived by his brothers; Larry Greco, of Jackson NJ and Rick Greco, of Riverton NJ. He is preceded in death by his parents Agnes and Anthony Greco and his brother Tony Greco of Riverton NJ. Jim was born on September 15th, 1942 in Palmyra NJ. He was an avid Boy Scout who reached the Order of the Arrow in record time. Jim excelled in sports at Palmyra High. Starring on both the football and state champion baseball team. Jim attended the University of Delaware. He was a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and was their long running Chaplain. He graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree in 1965 and immediately went to work for Hercules. By 1971, Jim was hired away for what would turn out to be the opportunity of a lifetime. For the next 43 years Jim would rise through the ranks at Printpack, treasuring every relationship and challenge with the same enthusiasm. His career was full of accomplishments. He was well known for his integrity, values and humble strength that never wavered. Jimís loud voice and huge laugh contradicted his keen ability to listen to others to solve problems while allowing others to take credit for successes. He was truly a dedicated company man and enjoyed his career every day of his life. Beyond his success as a businessman, family and faith were everything to Jim. He was a man of unwavering faith. He lived his life by example from his childhood to the day he passed. He let his values be known. All who knew Jim were touched by his character and faith. Providing for his family was Jimís first priority and he did so wonderfully. He loved his family unconditionally and family get-togethers were his happiest times. After retirement, Jim became known as Baba and his joy was watching his grandchildren grow up. He arranged his daily schedule around their games and events and loved to watch them thrive. His constant presence along with his encouragement will never be forgotten. Baba was and will always be their biggest fan. Jim loved the beach, which is fitting because he met his wife Maureen there 53 years ago and in recent years called Hilton Head home for part of the year. Whether it was the jersey shore fishing with his brothers, summers in Nags Head, playing golf with his sons at Haig Point or riding bikes in Sea Pines with his grandchildren, Jim was happiest with his feet in the sand and the ocean breeze on his face. The vigil will be Monday June 26th at 6:30 p.m. and the funeral Mass is scheduled for June 27th at 11a.m. Both events will be at Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church in Atlanta GA; Father Daniel Ketter will officiate. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Jimís life. In lieu of flowers please make any donations to the SHARE Military initiative at Shepherd Center.
