James Ynastrilla, Sr.

Obituary of James Jesus Ynastrilla, Sr.

James J Ynastrilla Sr was born on February 22nd 1973 to Antonio M Ynastrilla and Mary Elizabeth Hailey. On Saturday May 25th his life was brought to a devastating and sudden end. He was taken from us by hypertension induced coronary heart disease, the same disease that claimed his own mother.

James was very well loved by his friends and his community. Originally from Laurel, Maryland he relocated to the Eastern Shore in 1995 to give his family a better life. He was a very well known and respected local chef. He was lucky to have been able to do what he loved for a living. If he wasn't in the kitchen cooking up one of his amazing creations, he was with his beautiful family.

James was a huge Steeler fan and in his inner circle he was often referred to as the Godfather of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also enjoyed watching wrestling with his sons.

He is survived by his wife, partner, and best friend Amy Michelle Lombardo-Ynastrilla, their five children Tiffany Nichole, Danielle Suzanne, Jocelyn Nicolette, James Jr, and Leo Benjamin. He is also survived by his five grand children Adelina Belle, Jason (Jace) Scott, Everly Michelle, Josephine Rumore, and Jeffrey Eugene.

He is loved with all of our hearts and will be greatly missed.

Arrangements are in the care of Eastern Shore Cremation and Funeral Service a division of Holloway Funeral Home, P.A., 504 Franklin Avenue, Berlin, MD 21811.  Please visit www.easternshorecremation.com to express condolences to the family.
