Jim would have considered his love for his family as his greatest achievement. He enjoyed sharing many activities and memories with them. Over the years he was his grandkids number one fan, whether it was in sports, dance, or other activities they enjoyed. The one event that Jim looked forward to every year was the family trip to the lake in Mercer where endless memories were made. He spent hours on the lake teaching kids to ski, tubing, fishing, and losing at least 1 hat a year to the water. His love of the outdoors was evident on the numerous camping trips with friends and family.
Jim’s love of sports, especially the Wisconsin Badgers was second to none. He would spend endless hours watching or attending football, hockey or baseball games with friends & family and enjoying his favorite Miller High Life. The WHAoG (Wisconsin Hockey Ambassadors of Goodwill) were what he considered some of the best friends you could have and he cherished all the amazing memories they made. His love of sports didn’t end there, Jim dedicated his time as an umpire for the South Milwaukee Little League for over 40+ years and had the honor of umpiring at the Little League Regional Tournament in Indianapolis to cap off his umpiring career.
Jim was proud to have retired as a master journeyman electrician after 47 years. His extensive knowledge on everything from construction to fixing cars was like no other. He was always ready & willing to help anyone who needed it with any project they had.
God must have needed a new handyman to help others with his gifts.
In lieu of flowers, memorials to South Milwaukee Little League are appreciated.
