James J Moroney, 80, of Hathorne, died unexpectedly on Tuesday at his home.  He was the devoted and beloved husband of Jane E (Brudzynski) Moroney.

Jim taught for one year after graduating from college and then enlisted with the United States Army in 1961 and was stationed in Korea for two years before his honorable discharge in 1963.  Upon his discharge from the Army, Jim married the love of his life, Jane E Brudzynski, with whom he shared over 56 years of marriage.

Jim was employed with Sears as a salesman in the auto center in Salem and Peabody. He also worked as a real estate agent in Salem.  Upon his retirement from Sears, he enjoyed wintering in Naples, Fl.

Besides his loving wife Jane, he is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Thomas J and Janet Moroney of Stow, and by his sister, Sr. Anne Marie Moroney of NJ, and by his niece, nephew and dear friends.
