James William Burrell IV

September 4, 2023


Mr. James William Burrell, IV, also known as “Jimmy” to many, entered the arms of the Lord on Monday, September 4, 2023, in the Overlook Medical Center in Summit, New jersey.

James was born in San Francisco, California and he lived in Union, New Jersey for some time before settling in Roselle Park seven years ago.

He enjoyed being a chauffeur and James shared with close family that he had driven for a couple of famous people in his career.  James then became a driver for Union Taxi in Union New Jersey, a livelihood he held for about six years before having to retire a few years ago.

James was an avid inventor who was successful in achieving patents on his devices.  He enjoyed being a videographer and his specialty was taking videos of firework displays put on by the various towns.  Also, he often went to numerous local car shows and took videos of the many people attending them, as well as, all the interesting cars on display.  James enjoyed cooking so much that he created many videos of himself preparing all sorts of delicious delicacies from an array of different cuisines.  These videos he uploaded to YouTube for all to watch, learn and even re-create the dishes.  James’ talent also displayed itself in his writing of books and he was the author of eight books, all focusing on Christianity based religion.

James is survived by his son, Frank Patrick McVey Burrell; his mother, Rose Marie Cameron and her husband, Gary Cameron; his father, James William Burrel; his sister, Tracy Helen Burrell and her husband, James Mullen and many friends and neighbors.

James was certainly a one-of-a-kind, unique individual who loved to explore life around him.  He will be greatly missed, but James will never be forgotten.

In accordance with the family’s wishes, all the funeral services are private.
