James William Hirschmann Jr.

James William Hirschmann, Jr. of Doylestown passed away peacefully on January 17, 2023 surrounded by his loving family at Pine Run Health Center. He was 84.

Jim was the much beloved and devoted husband of the late Elizabeth (Betty) Hirschmann to whom he was married to for 56 years.

Born in Philadelphia in 1938, Jim was the son of the late James William and Louise Hirschmann.  He attended Olney High School in Philadelphia.  He served in the United States Army.  After serving, he met and married Betty in 1959.  After they were married, Jim and Betty moved to Warminster, PA and dedicated their lives to raising eight children from their home on Dager Road.

 Jim was beloved by the community for his generous spirit and passion for life.  He had a long and successful sales career working for companies around the region.  He was an active volunteer in Warminster, serving as commissioner for the Warminster Parks and Rec Committee, organizing the annual Nativity of Our Lord carnival and for over 20 years coaching football for Warminster Pioneers, Nativity Mustangs, BucksMont Saints, Archbishop Wood Vikings, and Archbishop Egan Eagles.  Jim was also a 3rd Degree member of the Knights of Columbus.  His biggest joy came during the Thanksgiving holiday when bringing happiness to others through his annual Bolton Farm turkey deliveries to friends and families throughout the area.  

Jim was an avid sports fan.  He especially enjoyed watching his sons play football at Archbishop Wood High School and their respective colleges.  He later turned his attention to cheering on his grandchildren from the sidelines in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Maryland, and Southern California.

Jim is survived by his sister Carol Ann Hirsch and his eight children: James W. Hirschmann III and his wife Laura of Manhattan Beach, CA; Paul Hirschmann and his wife Meg of Sugar Hill, GA; Stephen Hirschmann and his wife Maria of Sarasota, FL; Thomas Hirschmann and his wife Terri of Manhattan Beach, CA; Karen Roschetz and her husband Bill of North Wales, PA; Michael Hirschmann and his wife Michele of Chalfont, PA; Beth Ann Hirschmann of Hermosa Beach, CA; and Brian Hirschmann and his wife Katie of Holland, PA.  He is also survived by his 20 grandchildren: Jimmy and his wife Megan, Samantha and her husband Eli Boskey, Emily, Will, Joe, Paul, Robby, Stephen, Michael, Luke, Colin, Anamae, Grace, Olivia, Natalie, Liam, Lauren, Ella, Ava and Charlie.  He also recently welcomed a great-granddaughter, Liv Irie Hirschmann.
