James Patrick Coughlin, Sr., 83, of Finleyville, passed away, December 16, 2021 due to Covid.  He was born March 16, 1938 in New Rochelle, New York, the son of Charles and Helen Maynard Coughlin.  After Jim graduated from Archbishop Stepinac High School in 1956, he went on to study at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts, graduating in 1960. Following graduation, Jim married Rosemarie (Miano) Coughlin whom he had met in kindergarten at Holy Family Grammar School. Jim then entered the U.S. Air Force. They were stationed in Valdosta, GA, Aviano, Italy, Evreux, France and Glasgow, Montana. After having their 5 children, Jim decided to leave the Air Force and settle in Chadwick, Maryland.
