James A. Muraco passed away at home on December 25th, 2019, surrounded by his family. He was born in Dipignano, Italy on October 12, 1928 to the late Carmen and Marie Muraco. He was a Coast Guard Veteran, serving during the Korean Conflict. Jim was a Captain with the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department, and a Cowboy. He had a Champion Rainer horse named Dino, enjoyed a nice glass of Cianti or a good scotch and water, was a phenomenal cook, loved a good time with family and friends, lived his life to the fullest, and was always up for a good laugh. One thing he lived by is “family comes first.”

I was 14 years old when I was placed in the care of Jim and Mabel. They taught me lots of things like how families should be, the value of hard work and priorities. I will surely miss the Muracos. My favorite memories are of going to the auction with Jim, or processing pigs in the meat shed. Love and Condolences to Debbie, Babs, Joe, Peter and the rest of the family 😥

I was lucky to have known Jim...he was one of a kind. He took such good care of my horses.....always happy to watch us ride away and glad to see us return. He said he liked to watch his horses and he truly took care of them as if they were. I know I was a lucky to have called him my friend. I know I will miss him but cherish my memories.

You were a good man. I'll always recall our pheasant hunting trips. Although we didn't always bag any, we still had a good time.

Jimmy Muraco was like my second dad. He taught me how to ride a horse. I clearly remember him standing in the middle of the ring guiding me around and telling me how my legs should be and where the reins should be held. He ate a piece of the very first cake I baked which was chocolate and I would later learn was not his favorite, but he wouldn't let me know that. He ate every crumb with a smile on his face. I'm not able to make the service, but I had to share my memories. I know how much he loved his family and his friends. He was truly a good, good man and will be missed. There's a hole in the universe. Rest in peace, Jimmy.
