James V. Regan, 95 of Keansburg, passed away peacefully on Saturday April 25, 2020.

Jimmy was born on February 28, 1925 in Hell’s Kitchen Manhattan NY, before moving to the Keansburg area for most of his life. Jimmy was a US Navy Veteran from 1942-1945 serving aboard the USS FIske and the USS Deuchess . Jimmy worked as a longshoreman for the International Longshoremen’s Association for 55 years, working his way up to Foreman/Loft Boss on the NY Passenger Terminal to complete his career. He was eternally young at heart, and was usually the happiest when spending time with his family, floating in his pool or chasing Mickey down in the Magic Kingdom. In later years, Jimmy could be found trying to break the bank in Atlantic City, tending to his flowers or working on his infamous killer tan. Jimmy was a sharp dresser who will forever be remembered for his Shiny Shoes.

Jimmy was predeceased by his beloved wife of 49 years Patsy, and a son Jimmy Griffin. He is survived by his 6 children, Julie Corbisiero and her husband Pat, John Regan and his wife Kathy, Pat Regan and his wife Anne, Leeny Walsh and her husband Dave, Tom Regan and Tricia Regan, 5 grandchildren Stefanie, Sara, Blaine, Jake and Jolie, and his 2 great grandchildren Julia and Ethan James, and many loving nieces and nephews.

Arrangements were entrusted to the Evergreen Memorial Funeral Home 1735 Rt. 35 Middletown, NJ 07748. Due to the currently COVID-19 health crisis, visitation and services will be held privately for the immediate family only.

May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. And rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

I am so sorry for your loss. I had the privileged of knowing James in these last years of his life. I also met the wonderful family he has. So devoted and loved. He was always so happy to go home with his family whether to spend time with them or swimming which he loved, There is so many things you did not see in his last years as playing checkers for which he did beat me at times and the love he shared with the other residents. At times he woul not go to bed until he kissed all the ladies and oh did he make them smile!!
I will miss him dearly and never forget him and his devoted family
