BOCA RATON — Gumbo Limbo Nature Center was near and dear to James T. Heverin’s heart. He spent many hours there as a volunteer.
So when Mr. Heverin died last month, the family asked that donations in his memory go to the nature center.
Mr. Heverin, 70, of Boca Raton, died at Hospice by the Sea on June 3.
Before moving to Boca Raton, Mr. Heverin lived in Bergenfield, N.J., where he was known for his volunteer work. He coached basketball, soccer and Little League, and was a volunteer with the Cub Scouts and the town’s ambulance service.
A graduate of St. Francis College in Brooklyn, Mr. Heverin worked at CIT Group in New York, where he retired as vice president.
A devout Catholic, Mr. Heverin was active with the Knights of Columbus at St. Joan of Arc Church and a member of the men’s club at St. Ambrose Catholic Church. He was a volunteer at the Boca Raton Police Department.
Survivors include his wife, Anne; son, Tim, with his wife, Allison, of Chicago; daughter Anne Marie Heverin of Hoboken, N.J.; and grandchildren Patrick, Katy and Nora.
Glick Family Funeral Home, Boca Raton, was in charge of arrangements. A Mass in his honor was held on June 7 at St. Ambrose Catholic Church, Deerfield Beach.
