Son of Daniel and Patti (Dieckmann) Read, he was born on June 22, 1991, in Suffern, N.Y.

He was a self-employed rreelancer. Jimmy loved fishing, camping, climbing trees, camp fires, hiking and the outdoors. He loved to make up his own rap songs and hang out with his friends and family. He was the "bestest" big brother to Danielle and Zack. He loved his children with all his being. Jimmy had a huge heart and would do anything to help anyone. He cherished his family and friends. He truly was “one of a kind.”

He was predeceased by his grandfather Charles Dieck and his great-grandmother Anita Dunne. He also lives on through his best friends Kelsey Travor, Tim Wendland, the Sunrise Crew and many others, too many to list.

There will be a celebration of life held for Jimmy on Saturday, Feb. 17, at the American Legion Post 139, County Route 2001, Milford, Pa., from 1 to 5 p.m.

Cremation was held at the convenience of the family at MacLennan Hall Crematorium, Milford Township.
