James S. Mientka

James S. Mientka (June 29, 1959 - March 21, 2020), was born in Northampton, the son of Gisele and the late Stanley Mientka of Leeds. Jim attended local schools and was a  1977 graduate of Smith Vocational School before his employment at Digital Equipment and most recently Lizotte Glass, never missing a day of work, until he was forced into an early retirement a few years ago due to a colon cancer diagnosis. True to form right through his final days (which were spent lovingly cared for by family members at his childhood home in Leeds), Jim  handled unimaginable adversity as little more than an inconvenience and was a true inspiration to everyone he encountered.Jim truly enjoyed the outdoors, and was always busy planning his next adventure, which typically involved but was not limited to, two wheels and a motor en route to parts unknown.
