James Karpinski

James was born in Great Barrington on Aug. 9, 1952, the son of Peter and Theresa (Cote’) Karpinski. He was a graduate from the Monument Mountain Regional High School class of 1970. After high school James proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force in Vietnam. James worked for many years as a serviceman for the now Time Warner Cable and most recently as a parts delivery driver for Napa Auto Parts in Great Barrington. James frequented the James A. Modolo Post #8348, enjoyed participating in the shoots at the Great Barrington Fish and Game, playing horseshoes, attending his children’s sporting events as they grew up and was an avid Red Sox fan. During his year of treatment, you would find him either watching a game or doing a jigsaw puzzle. James is survived by his son, Jared Karpinski, of Great Barrington; his daughter Tess Karpinski, and companion Sean Sermini of Great Barrington; his brother Paul Karpinski and wife Sharon of New Durham, New Hampshire; his sister Joann Garzone of Pittsfield; his former wife Victoria (Oppelt) Karpinski; and many nieces and nephews.
