Age 78, of Caledonia, WI, passed away on Tuesday, July 26th, 2022 peacefully, with his family at his side.

Jim was born in Racine, WI on June 13, 1944, the son of Ervin L. and Elaine R. (Marsch) Dombrowski. He graduated from Horlick High School in Racine. He served in the Air Force and was stationed in Belin, Germany.

Jim worked as an operator for A.W. Oakes and Son for over 35 years and was respected among his peers. Jim and wife Connie also ran Connies Country Chalet for over 9 years, and made many lifelong friends. Jim loved his vegetable garden and had a small produce farm for many years. He loved his past deer hunting adventures with his friends and family. He loved to find a great deal, whether it was at the grocery store or in talking to someone at the local tavern. He was a great cook and his many specialty dishes will be missed. Jim had many friends and was not afraid to talk to anyone.

Jim is survived by his wife of 46 years, Connie M. Dombrowski, five children, Kellie (Keith) Christensen, Rick (Cathy) Estock, Jodie (Bill) Acker, Mike (Patty) Dombrowski and Todd (Cindy) Dombrowski. Grandchildren, Josh, Jamie, Shai, Andrea, Jake, Amber, Jamie, Jessi and Shianne. Two brothers, Gilbert (Judy) Dombrowski and Erv Dombrowski. Numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ervin and Elaine Dombrowski; brother Don Dombrowski; sister Janet Dombrowski; sister-in-law Lois Dombrowski; granddaughter Holly Estock and great-granddaughter Elena Rodriguez.

A celebration of Jimโ€™s life will be held Thursday, August 4th, at Heritage Funeral Homes (9200 S. 27th St. Oak Creek) with visitation from 1-4pm and a service at 4pm.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to American Legion Family Harvey Funk Post 494 (4226 Michel Ct. Franksville, WI 53126) are greatly appreciated.

    Jim spent countless hours digging a pond for us! A lot of laughs and good times were celebrated after a long day of excavating! Connie was always so supportive (even though we knew Jim had projects at home that needed tending to!). We also had many good times @ Connie’s Country Chalet! Santa was always there for the kids! We enjoyed Christmas time when you could buy a christmas bulb hanging from the ceiling and win a prize! Our daughters loved to go there @ that time of the year-or play the animal machine (Carley you cost your Dad a small fortune!) You just never know-so live life to its fullest! Our family will never forget you Jim! Our prayers are with all the family members of Jim-a great guy gone too soon! I’m sure you are up in heaven telling all your family members stories that they will enjoy!

    Love, The Brownlee Family

    Our deepest sympathies and condolences go out to Connie and all of the Dombrowski family members on the homegoing of Jim. May you know God’s comfort, peace, and strength during this difficult time. The words from Revelations 21:3-5 are comforting from the Scriptures: “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! Godโ€™s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away”. He who was seated on the throne said, โ€œI am making everything new!โ€ Then he said, โ€œWrite this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.โ€ Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Dombrowski family. My husband, Alan Marsch, was Jim’s cousin (Alan’s parents are Lawrence and the late Grace Marsch). ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ™โœ
