Jamaes Patrick Totoro 55 of Atlantic City, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on April 24th, 2022. Born on May 10, 1966 in Atlantic City, he is the Beloved husband of Karen A. Kershaw-Totoro. He touched the lives of all around him and could instantaneously bring a smile to the face of anyone he met. He was a 1984 graduate of Atlantic City High School, and married his precious wife Karen on November 8, 1992, in Longport, New Jersey. They never left their honeymoon stage and created a loving family of five children who were the pride of his life. Aside from being a devoted father, he was passionate about spending time outdoors, fishing, skiing, going to the beach, listening to music, walking his dog (Bella), and having a catch with his sons. He loved sports and was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan that never missed a game, unless one of his children had an event of their own. He was a volunteer coach throughout his life on all their sporting teams and relished every opportunity to cheer his children on in anything they set their mind to. He owned and operated A1A Painting and Power Washing, was a member of IUPAT and previously served in the role of Forman for Caesars Entertainment. He was the best at what he did and had hands of gold when it came time to plying his craft. Always there to help anyone in need, James was the life of any party and his contagious smile could light up the room he entered. A doting father, he is survived by his children Nicholas, James, Maria, Victoria, and Anthony. Dearest brothers Charles (Claire) and Thomas (Jean); adoring parents Mildred Fox and Charles Totoro, as well as countless cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
