    Mr. James worked for many local builders, among them Wesley Miller, Ed Pospisil, Dell Cullum, and Gene Futterman. Later in life he was a caretaker for the late Susan Tepper, an artist and philanthropist who founded the East Hampton Center for Contemporary Art. Most recently he worked for Sandpebble Builders until retiring just last year.

    Born in Manhattan on Nov. 4, 1921, to Fillipo Stavola and the former Maria Lombardi, he grew up in the Bronx, and served in the Navy during World War II.
