James was an active member of the St. Mary's Knights of Columbus and a longtime parishioner of St. Mary's Church in Mansfield, where he also served as a Eucharistic Minister and a member of the finance council. In his spare time, he was an avid reader who enjoyed medical mystery novels and religious books; he was a collector of fossils and meteorites. James had a lifelong devotion to Catholic saints, which he shared with the community through his collection of relics. He enjoyed the music of Bono and Prince, with both of whom he spoke. Above all, James loved spending time with his family, especially with his loving children, Ryan N. Di Corpo of New York and Erica N. Di Corpo of Mansfield.
