James Patrick Vest, at the age of 32, unexpectedly left us on July 22, 2020 from a seizure in the middle of the night.

 

James was born on March 17, 1988 to Mike and Marylou Vest in Malden Hospital. James went to high school in Lexington and went on to defeat all odds; he graduated from Lexington High School and went on to attend college at North Shore Community College.

 

He enjoyed spending time with his family and beloved pets. He also loved to beat his family and friends in Madden on his Xbox. He would spend his day riding his tricycle, drinking coffee by the pool and making everyone around him smile. He was so loved and fought for so long. James went against what all doctors thought and made it to 32 years of age.

 

James is survived by his parents Mike and Marylou, brothers Mike Jr, Josh, Matt, niece Thalia, sister-in-law Heather, aunts and uncles Patty and Steve Mattos, Debra and Rob Ransom, Jim Mattos, Joe and Ann Mattos, Lorraine Twohig, Susan and Kevin Walsh, Angela and Orlando Rodrigues, Pamella Calnan, Roberta Cabral, Rose and John Perullo, and many loving cousins.

 

We extended our gratitude to all the doctors and nurses that were in James' life.
