James Anthony Michael Donelson, affectionately known as "Jimmy D," aged 46, left us on Friday, August 4th, 2023. The cherished son of Margaret Roach, and loving brother to Joseph and Dana Roach, Jimmy's life was marked by fervor and zeal. His passions were many, but music held a special place in his heart, particularly in the rhythm of his drumming. As a producer and teacher, he was a trailblazer in the underground music festival scene. An unwavering Philadelphia “4 for 4” supporter, Jimmy took delight in his collection of sports cards and memorabilia. He also recently discovered joy in hosting an online cooking show with his mother. Though he will be deeply missed, his vibrant spirit will never be forgotten.
Friends and family are warmly invited to commemorate James' life on Sunday, August 13th, 2023, at 2pm. The memorial will be hosted at the home of his aunt and uncle, where memories and refreshments will be shared. For the address, please contact the family.
