James A. Frizzell, 98, husband of Anna (Omelko) Frizzell of Kimberton passed away on Friday evening, July 26, 2019 in his home.

He was born on October 11, 1920 in Philadelphia, PA to the late Ervin J. and Mary Jane (Cloney) Frizzell.

He attended St. Ann Catholic School and served in the U. S. Marine Corps during World War II in the South Pacific.

Jim was a devout member of St. Basil the Great Catholic Church.

He enjoyed playing guitar and in the 1940’s he was a member of the Pickering Valley Ramblers.  He passed along his love of music to each of his children.  Frequently he would spend hours singing old-time favorite songs with his family. He was a loving son, husband, father and grandfather.
