McGrath; loving father of James (Lisa) McGrath and Maura McGrath; proud “pap-pap” of Morgan, Matthew, Maggie, Molly, Jordyn, Kendyl and Sydney.  He was preceded in death by his siblings, Martin, Tommy, Donald, Paul and Joanne.  Jim served in the United States Army after he graduated from Duquesne University with a B.S. of Science in Mathematics.  He then took his education and experience and had a successful 40-year career with US Steel.  He attended St. Basil School in Carrick and formed relationships that thrived to this day with the “St. Basil Boys”.  He was a long-time active member of St. Louise de Marillac Church, where he could be found daily.  He was an accomplished baseball player when he was younger and stayed an avid fan his entire life.  Jim was a great husband, father, grandfather, and friend.  He will be missed by everyone that knew and loved him.  Friends will be received on Sunday from 2-4 & 6-8 pm at Paul Henney Cremation & Funeral Tributes, 5570 Library Rd.
