James Kenneth Yamartino

December 24, 1979 ~ May 29, 2023 (age 43) 43 Years Old


James Kenneth Yamartino Jr James K. Yamartino Jr, 43, passed away unexpectedly May 29th, 2023. He was born on Christmas Eve, 1979, in Midland Michigan to Diane and James Yamartino. Jimmy attended Conway public schools graduating high school in 1999 and continuing his education at Bryant University in Smithfield, RI. Jimmy worked in the restaurant industry and thrived in that environment. He made his mark at many local businesses including Delaney’s Hole in the Wall, The Red Parka Pub, Margarita Grill, The Lobster Trap, Decade’s, and Vito Marcello’s Italian Bistro. Jimmy was the ultimate sports fanatic, rooting for the Miami Dolphins, Red Sox and the Bruins. He enjoyed trolling Patriots fans, and always made sure to tell everyone when the Patriots lost and the Dolphins won (fins up!). He had a love for music. His favorite band EVER was Pearl Jam; attending over 10 concerts with his best friend Jeff Boyer. He loved jamming out to alternative rock like Nirvana, classic rock like Neil Young, and 90’s hip hop. He was a natural performer and had no hesitation being on the microphone; whether it was emceeing a fundraising event with the Red Parka or singing with the band. He performed songs ranging from the Beastie Boys, Rage Against the Machine and Cypress Hill. He never turned down the opportunity to wear a costume or wig and dress up. A true entertainer and comedian. He was so charismatic and had the quickest wit. He could bring a smile to anyone's face. He made everyone laugh even with his hilariously inappropriate humor. Jimmy loved spending family vacations in Florida. He visited Fort Lauderdale as a child and Naples, Florida to visit his parents in his adult years. He always looked forward to the annual Santa’s Village trip and was the first one to get on the rides even if he had to push his nieces and nephews out of the way. Holidays were so important to him. Easter baskets and egg hunts, stockings and Thanksgiving mashed potatoes (no lumps!) were a necessity and always eaten while watching Christmas Vacation. He was an amazing Uncle and enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews. He loved animals especially his cat Chester, parents dog Charlie Murphy and his dog Judge. Despite struggles, he overcame some very hard things and loved his family unconditionally. Jimmy is predeceased by his maternal grandparents Kathryn (Jean) and Charlie Curran. Paternal grandparents Ernest and Dorothy Yamartino. His loving Uncle Mark, Uncle Chuck, and Cousin Mary. He is survived by his father and mother, Jim and Diane and two sisters. Kristine, her husband Rob Peterson and their children Callum, Elliana and Camilla. Jim is also survived by his youngest sister Sandra, her three children Brady, Dylan, Marley and Sandra’s fiancee Adam Lanzilotti . Jimmy is also survived by his loving fiancee Maggie Flynn and her family Kevin and Jen, Barbara and Alain. Jim left behind many treasured aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. A service of remembrance will be held June 4th, 2023 from 2pm - 4pm at Furber and White Funeral Home North Conway NH. There will be a private gathering for immediate family to follow. A celebration of life will be planned at a later date. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to Conway Humane Society in his memory.
