Our world is a better place because of Jim. He was born in Milwaukee on March 11th, 1928. He attended St. Bernards Grade School, Marquette High School, and Marquette University. After serving in the Army during the Korean War, Jim married the love of his life, Clarice, in 1953. They were together for over 60 years. He spent his career as a Purchasing Manager at Bruner Corporation and later at Fleck Controls. From the 1950’s thru the 1980’s, Jim was one of the top bowlers in the area. In retirement, he enjoyed all Wisconsin sports, spending time with family and friends, and took an occasional trip to Ho-Chunk, Potawatomi, or even Las Vegas. Jim missed a Powerball jackpot by one number in 1997. But all who knew him felt we won the lottery everyday by having Jim in our lives. He put others first, helping family, friends, and strangers in need. Jim had a special fondness for his grandchildren, Jack and Ava. He will be sorely missed by all of us. Dad, you will have a special place in our hearts forever!
A special thanks to the staff of Franciscan Woods for their wonderful care.

My deepest condolences to the Babler family. I was fortunate to have known “Mr. B” through his son Scott for almost 40 years. He was such a loving, caring man. A great example of strong character through our teenage years, a role model father to his son Scott, a gentle adoring husband to his bride, Clarice. In later years he was such a good grandfather! They say it takes a village to raise a family, I am sure glad Jim was in our village!
