Chicago Tribune, December 21, 1941

I think Frank J. Cominsky (d. 1989 in Brookfield, IL) is his brother. If so, James is married to Marilou, and has two sisters, Rose Piehl and Ann Raynor. Father is John, mother is Rosalie. 

This particular James died in Riverside, California, based on his wife's name

Served in the Navy during World War 2.

The APBR page for the PBLA has him playing basketball while stationed in Okinawa, so I think we have our man.
