Jim Treganza

May 11, 1944 – May 2, 2014

After many years of battling a variety of illnesses, including multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Jim Treganza had a massive heart attack and passed away on the evening of May 2, 2014, just nine days before his 70th birthday.

Jim was born May 11, 1944, in Alturas, Calif., to Gage and Pat Treganza. The family moved to Fairfield when he was 8, where he made many lifelong friends. He attended Armijo High School and is an alumnus of the class of 1962, with whom he helped plan their 50-year class reunion.

Jim had many vocations during his life, starting with Tayanita – his Indian hoop dancing act that he performed, complete with Indian village manned by his parents and the late Steve Lundquist – which was his means for paying for college. Following his graduation from San Francisco State with a bachelor’s in radio and television in 1966, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served in Vietnam as a Lt. Colonel for four years as part of the admiral’s staff. After his discharge, he worked for Kellogg’s and his territory was his beloved San Francisco. He then opened Jim Treganza Photography in Fairfield before working for the Boy Scouts of America as a district executive for 14 years. He served the Boy Scouts in Fairfield, Los Angeles, Stockton and Visalia, before leaving the Scouts to open his own business – Treganza Media Productions. Upon relocation to Stockton in 2001, he briefly returned to the Boy Scouts, serving the Sacramento Council in a marketing capacity. He was the marketing director for Stockton Civic Theatre before retiring in 2012.

After retirement he enjoyed returning to his many hobbies, including building model trains, magic and music which included relearning the banjo and the ukulele.

Jim is survived by his wife of 32 years, Suzi; children, James David Treganza, Kathryn Treganza and Elizabeth Zipper; grandchildren, Rayann, Nicole and Emma; as well as his brother, Donald “Skip” Treganza.

The memorial will be at 11 a.m., Friday May 9, 2014, at Central United Methodist Church, 3700 Pacific Ave., Stockton, Calif.  A reception will follow the service at the church.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Blue Water Navy Veterans Association, PO Box 1035, Littleton, Colo., 80160-1035 or [email protected] This is the organization that was instrumental in Jim obtaining his V.A. disability benefits and assists other vets with illnesses related to Agent Orange.

Arrangements under the care of DeYoung Shoreline Chapel ,7676 Shorline Drive, Stockton, Calif.
