James “Rock” Rooney, 63, of Rocky Hill, passed away peacefully on Thursday November 25, 2021 at Hartford Hospital. Born in Providence RI, to the late John & Mary Rooney and was predeceased by his brother Paul Rooney. He leaves behind his brother John and sister-in-law Myrna Rooney of Portland, CT, brother Thomas and sister-in-law Julie Rooney of Manchester, CT and sister Ann Marie (Rooney) Pisano and brother-in-law Mark Pisano of South Abington Twp, PA. He also leaves behind ten nieces and nephews. Jim was a resident of Rocky Hill for most of his life. In his younger years, he was a member of the Rocky Hill volunteer fire department for many years. His last employer was with the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch. Jim was always generous to everyone he knew. There was not anything he wouldn’t do for family or friends. One of his greatest pleasures was traveling. It was not uncommon for Jim to use his hard-earned money to take his nieces and nephews to Disney World, California, the beach and his beloved Lake George. He took delight in watching his nieces and nephews enjoy the many adventures he provided them. These experiences gave him many fond memories not only for himself, but for his family as well. Jim was a sports enthusiast. He was a die-hard Baltimore Orioles and Oakland Raiders fan all his life. He also was an animal lover and generously donated to many animal rights/care organizations. Jim’s family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to all of his loving friends and neighbors for their outpouring of support along with Fresenius Kidney Care, The Lodge at Cold Spring, Kathy’s Caregivers and all the dedicated staff at Hartford Hospital. He and his family greatly appreciate all of the words of encouragement and prayers. At Jim’s request, services will be held privately in the care of Rose Hill Funeral Homes, Rocky Hill, CT.
