James Vorozilchak

James P. "Jimmy V" Vorozilchak, 61, of Scranton, died Sunday at home after a sudden cardiac event.

Born Dec. 19, 1958, in Scranton, Jimmy was the son of Lillian (Kervalavich) Vorozilchak, Scranton, and the late Phillip Vorozilchak. He graduated from Central High School and went on to earn his bachelor's degree from the University of Scranton.

Jimmy worked as a real estate appraiser for Kanton Realty Inc. and for Montage Mountain as a ski instructor and race coordinator for 36 years. He was a level 3 instructor for the PSIA, which is the highest level one could achieve. Along with his more known professions, Jimmy modeled for the sports industry. Jimmy enjoyed fishing, skiing, cooking and gardening. He had a strong love for biking, running and triathlons. He was the king of fireworks and always had a stash at his family's home. He loved his animals, including but not limited to dogs, cats, Muscovy ducks and turtles. Most of all, Jimmy loved his family. He was an amazing father and wonderful son.

Surviving, in addition to his mother, are his children, Sasha and Pavel Vorozilchak, of Archbald; one sister, Phyllis Ruzbarsky and husband, Joe, of Clarks Summit; his aunt, Monica Kashuba; many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by brother, David Phillip Vorozilchak.
