The Lord received Jim into Eternal Life on Christmas Eve, the holiest night of the year. Jim brought such incredible joy into our lives as a son, brother, spouse, stepfather, grandfather, co-worker and best friend. While we are happy for him at the end of his earthly pilgrimage, we all miss him beyond measure.
James is survived by his wife, Therese Wildman; stepchildren Lily (John) Rebmann, Emily Kinney, Laura (Trevor) Lund, Valerie (Jack) Battaglia, Joe (Ashley) Lengerich, Annaliese Lengerich and 13 grandchildren, Eleanor, Stanley, Rosemary, Adella, Bernadette, Benedict, Lucien (Rebmann), Anicate, Atticus (Kinney), Fae, Freddy, Phoebe (Lengerich), Sienna Battaglia and two siblings, Maryanne (Larry) Schroeder and Bill (Sharon) Wildman.
He was preceded in death by his parents James and Sarah Wildman and his twin brother, Jack Wildman.
