James E. Mikolic

September 24, 1933 — December 4, 2023



MIKOLIC, James E., “Jim, Bones,” 90, passed away at home on December 4, 2023. James is preceded in death by his parents Frank and Isabella, his brothers Joe, Tim, and Ken Mikolic, and his grandson Joshua Pavic. He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Donna R. (Coyle), his brother John married to Diane, his brother Frank married to Vicky, sister-in-law’s Pat and Gloria “Sis”, brother-in-law Robert Coyle married to Janet. Jim is also survived by his children: son James “Ace” Mikolic married to Tia, Step son; Benjamin Domonkos married to Janelle, and step daughter Lori Pavic married to Mark. Jim is survived by his grandchildren, “The boys”: Lonnie Ramirez “Bud” and Mark Pavic “Joe Joe,” and “The girls”: Morgan, Maya, Maria, and Haley Domonkos, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, all with their own nicknames from Uncle Jim. Jim served proudly in the Marine Corp - “Men wear trousers not pants.” Jim was a Mikolic—if you know, you know. He was old school and, at times, reserved with an extremely strong work ethic. Bones, as his crew knew him, worked as a supervisor at the Old Laurel Management Company for 47 years, never calling in sick. Jim took pride in everything he did, as anyone that drove around Johnstown with him knew. He would point out every job he did in detail, alongside a story. Jim enjoyed little league baseball games, high school soccer games, gardening the best tomatoes and garlic in town, and loved to fly with his pilot’s license. Back in the day, Jim was a “card holding” member of the Cal and Dots Saturday social hours. Whether you knew him as a husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle, or just as Bones, he was a great guy. Jim cherished and saved every card, gift, and memento ever given to him. Even if you never heard him say it, he really did love all of us—but maybe not as much as his beloved dogs, especially Abbey, who never left his side. In lieu of flowers, please make all donations in memory of Jim to the Cambria County Humane Society. He will be missed. Cremation by Laurel Highlands Crematory at Harris Funeral Home, 500 Cherry Lane, Richland.
