Our family has known Jim for decades. He was one of the most awesome, nicest, honest and memorable guys our family has ever had the pleasure of knowing and being able to call him a friend was an absolute honor. EVERYONE who knew him will truly miss Jim very much around this great community of Wonder Lake. To our family, he is one of the original Wonder Lake residents and this community will forever remember Jim and his great personality and also his integrity. He raised a beautiful family and we are also honored to call them friends as well. We believe Jim's great spirit and character will live on through his children, his grand children and his great-grandchildren. What an awesome man Jim LaGreca truly was and we will forever miss seeing him and talking to him for sure. RIP Jim LaGreca, Love, The entire Cynowa family.

Jim LaGreca was one of the nicest men to me. One of the greatest fathers to his kids. He was always so kind and sweet. He will be missed dearly. He was my favorite LaGreca, not that I don't love and care for them all. I am so very sorry. You all were so blessed to have him as you father, Grandpa, husband, and friend. You will be so very much missed love Betty

Such sad news. Jim was such a sweet man and the first person to show me how good REAL Parmesan cheese is. I'll never forget lunch with him and Barb and watching the love between them as he helped her with her cheesecake... ♡ Prayers for the whole LaGreca Family as they mourn the loss of a great man. Xoxo
