Obituary of James Feddeck

James J. Feddeck, age 71, passed away peacefully on November 14, 2018 at Calvary Hospital in Bronx, NY. Born to Fred and Mary Feddeck in Bronx, NY, he graduated with honors from Fordham Preparatory School and Boston College. In 1974, he, along with brother Fred C. Feddeck, took over the successful family moving business, and served as Company President of Careful Moving& Storage, Inc. As a physical education teacher from 1970-1974, he was honored as the only faculty member in the history of Horace Mann School to be chosen by all grades as class advisor. “Coach” instructed Ivy League Champions in Track and Field and Basketball, yet his true passion materialized as he devoted himself to the game of football and his kids at Fordham Preparatory School (1986-1996), Notre-Dame-Bishop Gibbons High School, Roosevelt High School, and Sacred Heart High School in Yonkers, where he established the school's football program and training facility. Jim will be remembered for his  mentoring on and off the field, lifelong friendships, generosity, and brilliant sense of humor.

 

James is survived by his wife of 45 years Anita Feddeck, of Passaic, NJ; sons Jason and Jonathan Feddeck; daughter Lisa Feddeck; grandchildren Briana, Gianna, Maija, and Aurora; brothers Fred C. Feddeck and Michael Feddeck; sister-in-law Mary Feddeck; brother-in-law Juris Goba; and nephews Fred and James Feddeck. He is predeceased by his youngest daughter, Kristen Feddeck.

 

A sincere, warm thank you from the family to all of the doctors and staff at St. Mary's Hospital, New York Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital, and Calvary Hospital that provided care for James.
