James A. “Jim” Kreschollek, of Nockamixon Twp, passed away on Saturday, August 3, 2019 at Doylestown Hospital. He was 76 years old.

Jim was the beloved husband of Patricia Kreschollek. The couple would have celebrated their 56th anniversary in September.

Born in Doylestown, he was the son of the late Harry and Rebie (Cornell) Kreschollek. He graduated from Central Bucks, class of 1960 and later was a member of the Pennsylvania National Guard over a period of 6 years.

Jim was employed as a sheet metal fabricator for AEL Industries in Colmar, PA for 35 years. After retiring from AEL, Jim enjoyed driving for the shuttle service at Fred Beans for several years.

In his free time, Jim and Pat enjoyed seeing their grandchildren participate in sports and musical activities. He was also a fan of the Eagles and Phillies. Jim coached little league for his sons’ teams and was president of the Palisades Sports Booster Club. He was also an avid fisherman throughout his entire life.

In addition to his wife, Jim is survived by his son Drew and grandchildren Dane and Gavin, and his son Brad, daughter-in-law Christine and grandchildren Helen, Keith and Henry.
