James Ingargiola Obituary, Town Of East Bridgewater Honors 95-Year-Old WWII Veteran
James Ingargiola Obituary, Death Cause – I have just learned that James Ingargiola, a veteran of the Battle of Iwo Jima who served during World War II, has passed away. RIP Marine. I am so sad to learn this It was such a pleasure to listen to him that night while he was in town. I am so sorry to hear this. I count it as a blessing that we were able to get together. James Ingargiola, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and a longtime resident of East Bridgewater, was awarded a special citation by the Town of East Bridgewater on Tuesday, April 6, following his recent struggle with COVID-19.
The presentation was made by Christopher Buckley, the Veteran Service Officer for the Town of East Bridgewater, and David J. Sheedy, the Vice Chair of the Board of Selectmen. On February 5, Ingargiola was admitted to the hospital after complaining of feeling weak and being severely dehydrated. It was determined that he was suffering with COVID-19 the following day at the Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, which is where he was taken by ambulance.
On March 23, Ingargiola was discharged from the Sachem Center for Health & Rehabilitation in East Bridgewater, where she had been a patient for a short while. Since then, she has made a full recovery. A special ceremony was held at the East Bridgewater Council on Aging on Plymouth Street to honor Ingargiola for his service and recent health fights (he also recently overcame a diagnosis of lung cancer). The ceremony was held to acknowledge Ingargiola for his service and recent health challenges.
The following is an excerpt from the certificate of appreciation that was given to Ingargiola by the Vice Chair Sheedy: “The Board of Selectmen of East Bridgewater would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude and admiration to James Ingargiola for the selfless service he provided to our nation while serving in the United States Marine Corps during World War II… Throughout the past year, our neighborhood and its residents are thankful for your unwavering commitment and hard work in the fight against lung cancer and COVID 19.
We would like to express our profound gratitude to you for the patriotic service that you have provided to the Town and its citizens over the years. Sheedy praised the numerous friends and family members who attended to show their support for Ingargiola and stated that the Town of East Bridgewater is a better place as a result of Ingargiola’s contributions. “I think that if we all had some of the strength and dedication that Jim has, we’d all be better people,” Sheedy said. “I think that if we all had some of the courage that Jim has, we’d all be better.” “What you have endured is truly unbelievable, and I’m sure your loved ones are incredibly proud of you,” said the speaker.
