The 56th Annual Newport St. Patrick’s Day Parade
is fondly dedicated to the memory of:
James M. Toppa, Sr.

August 10th, 1936 - August 9th, 2010


Our dad was a simple guy who was admired and

loved by his family, friends, and neighbors.  He was a

gentle man with an infectious personality.  Jim was a

loving, dedicated, and caring friend who would step in and

help out no matter what.  Our dad never said a bad thing

about anyone and no one said a bad thing about dad.  He

was humble and simple and would be very proud to be here today.

Happy St. Patrick's Day,

The Toppa Family

“May St. Patrick watch over you”
