Jim was a social man who loved meeting new people. He always had a joke for you and whether he was telling it to you for the first or the tenth time, he told it with the same excitement. Over the years, the family enjoyed numerous trips with the fondest memory being that Jim always had to stop for breakfast. He adored his two granddaughters and could always be found at their countless dance activities. Jim loved stock car racing and the Green Bay Packers. Jim's family & friends will cherish the memories they made over the years.
Survivors, besides his wife, Linda, include his two children, Kim (Al) Javoroski, Mosinee, and Kevin Linden, Rothschild; two grandchildren, Taylor and Tatum Javoroski; and a brother, Ronald (Benita) Linden, Trinity, Texas.
