He had a strong faith in God and was a devoted and faithful member of Our Lady Parish community in Waltham; he served as an Usher and Acolyte for years.

In his spare time Jim enjoyed writing letters, was a passionate and diehard Boston sports fan especially for the Boston Bruins.

Jim was the beloved husband for 58 years to the late Jean (Sullivan) Foley.

He is survived by his devoted & loving children Jeanie Foley-Kass of Waltham and James Foley of Waltham, his cherished grandchildren Benjamin Kass of Waltham, and Julia Kass of New Hampshire. In addition he is survived by many nieces and nephews.
