Sartor, James “Jimmy”

Husband, Father, Nonno, Zio, Son, Brother, Friend, Coach, Boss, Jimmy. No matter the relationship, James Sartor will be terribly missed and lovingly remembered. Forever known as Jimmy, his immense love for people and helping those around him will be the legacy he will be remembered for. Dedicating his life to coaching hockey and baseball, assisting family and friends in need and welcoming all people into his world, were only a small sample of his character. His love and devotion to his family knew no boundaries and he never disappointed. His life long bonds with his close friends were built through respect, understanding and loyalty. His immense passion for the outdoors can only be marked parallel to his love of sports. His involvement in the Coniston sports programs and the construction of his own slice of paradise on Washagami Lake are a testament to these passions. The name 'Jimmy' spread around the people and community who were lucky enough to have known him will forever bring memories of a man built from kindness, respect and perseverance. The lasting impact he left on people will cement his legend as a man of immense character and morals. He may have been diminutive in stature, but his heart and compassion was larger than life. The void left in the hearts of many, can only now be filled with cherished memories so that his influence can reverberate through the next generations to come.
You will be missed Husband, Father, Nonno, Zio, Son, Brother, Friend, Coach, Boss, Jimmy.
Rest easy. James Felix Luigi Sartor was born on March 9, 1948 to Gino Sartor (predeceased)and Mafalda Sartor (predeceased). On October 14, 2021 he claimed his rightful place in heaven.

He also leaves behind generations of life long friends and a community that welcomed him as family. A celebration of life will be at a later date.

  1. My condolences to the family, Jimmy was such an amazing man, no one had more passion and worked harder for the kids. He inspired each of us to go the extra mile and set the bar high for excellence in volunteerism, he was pretty damn cool. Rest easy Jim, you did good, so much good

  2. Thoughts and prayers to the Sartor Family in this difficult time. I had the pleasure of being coached by Jimmy in hockey and baseball for many years. His dedication to the players and community was evident every time he coached his team both on and off the field. It was a pleasure to play for him as he taught his players more than just fundamentals of the game but important life long lessons. He will be deeply missed by the countless players he coached but his legacy, sportsmanship, love for sport and memories he created will be shared and reflected on by all who knew him.
    Truly, a giant on and off the field.

  3. Dear Karen and family,

    I’m so saddened to hear of Jimmy’s passing. What an incredible man he was. He touched so many people with his kindness and generosity. He was a mentor to me when I was hired on at the township for my first summer job. He then became our fastball coach and friend for many years, loved and respected by everyone who knew him. I’m so sorry for your loss Karen. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

  8. Karen and Family
    Being a Bantam hockey player and having Jimmy as your coach was a dream come true. The respect I had for Jimmy as my coach will be in my heart for ever. Jimmy was always there for us and we just wanted to play for him.
    Sharing our 40th wedding anniversary on September 12, 2021 was very special. Karen and I were thinking of both of you on that day.
    Very sad to think Jimmy is gone, but my memories of him will last a life time.
