James "Jimi" Shawcross

James Michael Shawcross, endearingly known as Jimi, passed away in the twilight hours of April 11th, 2024. 

Proudly hailing from Frankford in Philadelphia, Jimi married Sharon Brophy in 1978 and had two children, Amanda Lauren and Colin James. As well as two grandchildren, Riley (Amanda), Teaghan Rose (Colin) and Cooper.

Jimi was a blue-collar working man that spared no expense on pranks and retelling stories to anyone who would listen. He lived by a motto of “it’s only rock n roll”. 

He was an Animal, music, and movie enthusiast. An avid Philly sports fan, the 76ers were his team. He loved his family deeply and will be sorely missed.

Please join the Shawcross family on Friday, April 19, 2024 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm at Delaware Valley Cremation Center, 7350 State Road, Philadelphia, PA 19136 for a gathering of remembrance in honoring and celebrating Jimi's life. A service for him will begin at 7:00 pm with time for refreshments and fellowship afterwards, until 9:00 pm. His family will be accessible to receive the loving comfort of your condolences, remembrances and support throughout the evening.
