    Mr. James L. Post, age 67, of Utica died Wednesday July 5, 2017 at the Veterans Hospital in Syracuse, NY after a courageous battle with Leukemia.

    He was born in Utica on October 7, 1949 to Marjorie and Paul Post. After graduating high school, Jim joined the US Marine Corp where he proudly served his country during the Vietnam War. He was employed for several years with Sam’s Club of Rochester, where he was a well-respected meat cutter. Jim enjoyed listening to the Beatles and cheering on his favorite sports teams, the NY Giants, Yankee’s and Sabers, as a most avid sports fan.

    Surviving are two sons and daughters-in-law Michael and Tina Post of Sauquoit and Daniel and Maria Post of Utica; four beautiful granddaughters Mariah, Ava, Alicia and Talia; his brother and sister-in-law Bruce and Cheryl Post of FL. and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents and one sister Terri Webb.

    In lieu of flowers, donations in Jim’s name may be made to the Leukemia Society. His funeral services with Military Honors were held privately in Mt. Olivet Cemetery at the convenience of the family.

    Rest In Peace my friend. I will never forget our Terrace Tiger days.
  • Bob Beaty

    Like Tommy Maggiore said above, rest in peace. We were all such close friends growing up at the Terrace. We all did everything together and we all had each other. No matter how bad things got, we could always count on each other.

    It was an honor to have your dad move to Steinhorst Square while I was manager there. He always had a smile and a kind word...... a gentleman. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Jim was like a brother in Vietnam. Always had a smile on his face. Like Randy Dittmar said, we all called him Jay, and when we finally found him on the computer with help from his sons, we all got together for a reunion. Was hoping to reunite with him and all our Marine brothers again soon. Rest in Peace, Jay. Semper Fi. Condolences to the family.
