A Funeral Mass for James A. “Jimmy” Dicker will be celebrated on Monday December 16th,  2019 in St. Patrick Church, Watertown at 11:00 AM.


Mr. Dicker passed away suddenly Wednesday morning December 11th.  He was 69.


Jimmy was known for his infectious smile and laugh.  As a loving "Beepa" he faithfully attended all of his grandchildrens' events and celebrations and never missed a family get together. Jimmy proudly wore his neon yellow vest every morning as he helped the children of Watertown get to school safely. He made strong bonds between the children and their families. 


Jimmy enjoyed his annual trips to Aruba with his friends and his summers in York Beach, Maine with his family.  He loved to cook. Every Sunday nights he could be found in front of the kitchen stove or the grill on hot summer evenings. Every summer, his grandchildren and daughters would wait in anticipation for the opening day of his pristine pool.  Water quality testing, skimming & cleaning, and a daily trip to Ocean State Job Lot were part of his everyday pool routine.


He was a veteran of the United States Army and served overseas in Vietnam.  Jimmy had a deep respect for other Veterans, Veteran’s groups, and a sincere love for the flag and country. He passed down that respect for the flag and country to his children and grandchildren.


He was the beloved husband of Lucille (DiLuzio) Dicker. Loving father of Kimberly Powazinik & her husband William, Thomas C. Dicker (WPD) & his wife Nancy, and Krista Urquhart & her husband A.J. all of Watertown. Devoted grandfather of Tommy & Toria Dicker, William & Addison Powazinik, and Henry Urquhart. Loving son of Ruth Dicker of Andover. Dear brother of John Dicker, Patricia McLaughlin and the late Michael Stevens. Also survived many relatives & friends.
