James Howard Feltman, born March 3, 1958, passed from this life on June 4, 2018. Jim was the only son of Janet and Howard, formerly of Long Pond, PA.

After graduation from Pocono Mountain High School in 1976, Jim pursued a career in the United States Coast Guard. A 22-year veteran, he rose to the rank of Chief Petty Officer (E-7). During his career, he was awarded a Coast Guard Commendation Medal in recognition of his heroic actions which helped save lives during a daring open ocean rescue, among other accolades. Jim was a highly skilled woodworker and designed and created beautiful pieces for friends and family.

Most of Jim's "Coastie" life was spent in Puerto Rico. There, he married Lourdes Rivera and was father to his two precious daughters, now married: Ashley (Jorge) and Alisha (Shawn). He is also survived by grandchildren Natalia and Mila, his mother, currently of Cornwall Manor, and sisters: Barbara, Carol, Donna, and Diane and their families.

For those so inclined, donations can be made in his memory to Rescate Playas Borinquen (www.rescateplayasborinquen.com) a non-profit that is restoring the beaches and recreational areas in Puerto Rico that he loved so much.
