In memoriam: Jim "Doc" Bonanni

Recommended Posts

It is with sadness that I report that Jim "Doc" Bonanni passed away on July 2nd. Jim was a long time IPMS member, a founding member of the Three Rivers IPMS Chapter, and for years a regular at National Conventions and model shows up and down the east coast. Walking through a contest room with Jim was always an adventure, as he seemed to meet an old friend every few feet traveled. Jim always had a joke to tell, and I have fond memories of him holding court in the club "hospitality suite" at our last Regional; he was a great guy to share a beer or a long ride to a model show, and he will be greatly missed in our club.

 

Visitation will be held Sunday evening in Sharpsville, PA.

I am very, very sorry to hear that. Doc was a great man and fun at conventions. He has been a staple for decades and had the respect of everyone he met. John and all will be in our prayers
