Beacon Hill, Boston - James Dick, born March 25, 1969, was a loving son, a beloved brother, a favorite uncle, and a loyal friend. He was lost to us on February 8, 2021. Jim was the son of the late James Dick, M.D. and is survived by his mother, Ann C. Dick; his brothers, Robert Walsh and Brendan Walsh; his sisters, Deirdre Walsh, Siobain Feyler (Sven), Alison Dick, Esq. (Don Jeka), Margaret Cyphers (Jeff), Jamie Dick, and Leslie Dick, M.D. (Steve Gurney). He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, grand-nephews, and a grand-niece.
Jim was born and raised in Oyster Bay Cove, New York. He will always be remembered for how much he loved his family and friends. As the youngest of nine children, he shared a special bond with his mother, enjoying a mutual love of reading, crossword puzzles, and a good joke. His dry wit was a mark of his humble intellect.
Jim loved seeing live music, and his love of both playing and listening to all kinds of music is something that he shared with all of his siblings. He passed this appreciation on to his nieces and nephews, who adored "Uncle Jimmy" and are grateful for his introducing them to a wide array of music. His entire family recalls with love his wonderful sense of humor and the twinkling eyes that accompanied it, and his awesome hugs.
Jim graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in graphic design. He was a creative soul, which was most evident in his photography and his culinary talents.
In 2007, Jim relocated to Boston, where he was a highly respected ultrasonographer specializing in vascular studies. His colleagues knew him to be an accomplished professional, generous in sharing his wealth of knowledge and technological skill. In Boston, he found a close collection of friends who are extended family.
Jim will be remembered with love. We will always miss him.
A summer memorial is planned.
