James Amasa Daily Jr.

CHAMPLAIN — James Amasa Daily Jr., 80, of Elm Street, passed away Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013, at his home surrounded by his loving family under the care of Hospice of the North Country.

He was born Sept. 9, 1932, in Cincinnatus, N.Y., son of the late James A. and Miriam (Bourkle) Daily.

James served his country with U.S. Air Force for 13 years before being honorably discharged Oct. 13, 1961, to be closer to home and start his family. He worked for F.W. Myers and Trans Border as a Customs Broker. He also ran his own businesses for many years; J & M Grocery, J & M Forwarding and J & M Trailer Sales. He was Manager at North Country Golf & Country Club and worked at Champlain Peterbilt. He was a past Supervisor for the Town of Champlain, a 4th Degree Knight and past Grand Knight with Champlain Knights of Columbus Council #3525, a former St. Mary's Parish Council member, and a member of Champlain American Legion Post #767 and V.F.W.

James was a loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather who loved to travel, having visited every state but Alaska. He loved golf and was a die-hard New York Yankees fan. However, he got the most enjoyment out of the time he spent with his family, especially his grandchildren and all of the special children in his life that knew him as "Papa."

He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Marilyn (Gooley) Daily of Champlain; his daughter, Donna (Larry) Sorrell of Champlain; his son, James A. Daily III and companion Megan Carter of Halfmoon, N.Y., his loving grandchildren, Justin Sorrell, Megan Sorrell, Erin Sorrell, Kyle Daily and Kaeleigh Daily; one brother, Donald (Marge) Daily of Syracuse; three sisters, Betty (Rex) Buker of Clayton, N.Y., Sally Case of Cayahoga Falls, Ohio, and Barbara Smith of Liverpool, N.Y.; brother-in-law, Robert (Melissa) Gooley of Champlain; sister-in-law, Linda (Doug) Pilon of Chazy; and special nieces and nephews, Leah (Rene) Glascock, Emma Gooley, Logan Gooley and Carter Gooley.
