James E. Fyler
James E. Fyler, 67, lost his long battle with COPD
on the 12th of May, 2020. Jimmy was the son of the late Harold E. Fyler (Harry) and Winifred Bartlett Fyler (Winnie).
He was born in Medford and remained
a resident for the majority of his life.
Jimmy graduated in 1970 from Medford High School, where he played basketball and was very proud to be part of the historical 1969 MHS basketball game held at The Boston Garden.
Jimmy continued to be an avid sports fan watching all sports especially any and all Boston teams.
After high school, Jimmy joined the Army Reserves before going on to study accounting and finance at Bryant and Stratton Jr. College. Jimmy then proceeded to have
a successful career in the Car Sales business.
After his early retirement, Jimmy enjoyed spending time with his family and many friends.
Jimmy was most proud of his family.
He was loved deeply by his 3 sisters,
Donna DeMeo and her husband Nick,
Christine Foley and her late husband Jack and
Cheryl Bennett and her husband Tony.
Jimmy was blessed to have 3 nieces: Alexandra, Jacquelyn and Nicole and 3 nephews: Matthew, Danny, and Michael as well as many great-nieces and nephews and one great-great-nephew. Jimmy also was loved and
cared for by his companion Patricia Celeste.
Jimmy’s family and close friends will be
celebrating Jimmy and his life in a private service.

Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
you will be missed, jim
I miss you so much and I love you rip no more pain
Just saw Jimmy’s obituary, my sincere condolences. Jimmy and I were not only good friends at Bryant & Stratton but were close teammates on the basketball team. I was the point guard and Jimmy was our center and we really played well together. Wish I had a chance to say goodbye to him. We had lots of fun off the court too.
