James was born on February 10, 1958 in Rockville Centre, NY to the late John Frank and Margot Alice (Pearsall) Hickling. He graduated from Garden City High School in 1976 and attended Nassau Community College, SUNY-ESF Ranger School and graduated with a BS in Business Administration from SUNY New Paltz in 1985. He earned a real estate license, worked as a pharmacist’s assistant at both Southampton and Stony Brook Hospitals on Long Island and earned his LPN degree, graduating first in his class, before becoming the primary caregiver for his mother in the final two years of her life.
Jimmy loved the woods and being outside. He fulfilled his long held dream of living in a small lakeside cabin when he bought his house on Cedar Lake in Edwards NY in 2008. An inveterate cat lover, he lived a somewhat reclusive life, very much enjoying his extensive music and film collections and the company of a few good friends.
He is survived by his brothers, Dana Hickling and Matthew Hickling, and his nephews Billy, Thomas and Luke Hickling.
