James M. Farese, 34

James M. Farese, 34 of Milford, passed away on Tuesday, February 8, 2022 after battling a lengthy illness. Born in Malden, MA, he was the son of Vincent E. and Linda (Letterie) Farese and the biological son of James Letterie.            

James was a graduate of Milford High School, Class of 2005 and earned his Bachelors of Science in Managerial Economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst: Isenberg School of Management in 2010. James went on to work for Fidelity Investments for six years. In addition to his parents, James is survived by his siblings, Francesca, wife of Garth Yohn of Milford, MA and their children, Nathan and Nicholas; Sabino Farese of North Providence, RI; Vincent P. and his wife Lisa of Scarborough, ME; and Krista, wife of John Wallace of Milford, MA and their children Ellie and Linc Wallace.            

James will be remembered by his loved ones as someone who put his all into everything he did. Whether it was advancing his career at Fidelity or working out at the gym, James was meticulous in achieving goals he set for himself. James could always incite a laugh with his quick wit and was never afraid to debate his point of view on any subject.

James most cherished his dog, Coco, who predeceased him. From Coco, grew James’s love for dogs. For many years he fostered numerous dogs and gave them a home and love until they found their forever home. Most recently, James found joy in working at a kennel where he cared for and trained dogs daily.

Per the family’s wishes, services will be private. Arrangements are under the direction of the Consigli Ruggerio Funeral Home Inc. 46 Water St. Milford MA

Linda, Vinny and family. I’m so sorry for your loss. Jimmy was a great kid and I will miss him dearly. I’ll never forget all the EXTREMELY idiotic fun things we did together as kids while living on Harding street together. We had so much fun and I have very found memories of those days, especially when we both dyed our hair blonde 🙄. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love always, Jarod Corey

Vin, Linda and family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. James was the most genuine of friends, would take the shirt off of his back for anyone of us no matter the circumstances. We will miss him dearly and hope he is in a better place. Vin, Burr, Sammy, Garth we will never be able to give back what you gave to us during our childhood. Coaching us in football and looking out for us as we grew up. Thank you for the memories, dedication, and kicks in the ass that we’re much needed! We love you guys and are thinking of you in these times. Wish I could have done more.

There is far much family to list individually. It shows how much James was cared for and loved. There are no words that can provide the comfort and peace that you all deserve. If circumstances were different and services were public it would take 3 days to get everyone through the doors. James made lasting impressions on complete strangers, never mind the impact he had on his family and friends. A life taken at an age that is far too young but the memories and laughs will be cherished forever. My sincerest condolences to everyone and may James find peace and tranquility for the rest of time.
