Not a fan of news like this but I often get the notice via e-mail on the passing of someone from the neighborhood so I’m glad to share with everyone.

Lifelong South Brooklyn resident Jimmy McGovern has passed away suddenly at his sister Wanda’s home in Livingston Manor, NY.

Jim, who was 62 was recovering from medical issues and was thought to be “on the mend.” Jim attended Holy Name then later went to St. Francis Prep.
