James “Jim” E. Yacko, 67, of Dayville, CT passed away on November 25, 2017. Jim was a psychotherapist for many years in the Worcester area. In his free time, Jim was an avid fisherman, spending many hours on the Long Island Sound and at his favorite lake in upper Maine. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, who in turn loved when Jim barbecued his famous ribs. Jim also loved following his favorite sports teams, especially his beloved New York Yankees.
Jim is survived by his wife and best friend, Maureen McKeon, his sister Paula (Jon) Maynard, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He will be sorely missed by his dog, Blue. Jim was predeceased by his parents George and Evelyne Yacko and his younger sister, Barbara Maione.
