James Caan

Mr. James Caan (born March 26th, 1940 as "James Edmund Caan") died violently in a lonely hospice on May 20th, 2022 (TBV) with his daughter nearby. His cause of death was possibly a heart attack. He was 82 years old when he passed.

James is survived by his most recent wife, Linda Stokes, his children, sons Scott Caan, James Arthur Caan, Jacob Nicholas Caan and daughter Tara Cann, his siblings, brother one and sister one as well as his pet goat, Squiggles.
James is predeceased by his parents, Sophie and Arthur Caan.

In his professional life, James was a Film Actor who was best known for his roles in several well received movies including "A Bridge Too Far".

When he was not on the job as a Film Actor, James was known for his love of speed walking and he would spend ages most weekends trotting along the road in front of his home. Mr. Caan (also known as Jimmy) also spent days visiting with his older sister most months when he was able to spare a unspecified ages. Ever since he was a boy in The Bronx, many remember James as a bit of a curmudgeon with fantastic magic tricks that engrossed everyone. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a significant donation to the Heart Foundation in James's honor.

A burial is scheduled for Friday the 27th at the crematorium in The Bronx. The service will commence at 3PM with a reception to follow hosted by his older sister at the cemetery where refreshments will be served. All are welcome to the visitation to be held at crematorium at 10AM.

Quotable Quotes:

"Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It's quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that's where you will find success."

"[on being voted "Italian of the Year" in New York twice, after his role as Sonny Corleone in The Godfather (1972)]: I'm a Jew from the Bronx. I feel guilty about accepting these awards, but they wouldn't let me turn them down." (IMDB)

"People often ask me if I know the secret of success and if I could tell others how to make their dreams come true. My answer is, you do it by working."
