James J. Eichman “Jim”, of Westville, NJ passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Wednesday February 10, 2021.
Jim was a unique and fun loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. Everyone who knew him loved him. He loved all things outdoors, be it fishing and trapping, gardening and hiking, and even metal detecting. He truly loved the outdoors and passed this love of nature off to his children & grandchildren. They surely will continue in his footsteps. Jim loved traveling the United States over the years with his family. Known as a strong man in a quiet way, he will be remembered for his quick wit and making others laugh.
