Born January 29, 1960, passed from complications of open heart surgery on to the greatest sports venue ever on February 4, 2016. Beloved son of the late Gordon and Joy Rheingans Funk. Younger brother of the late Greg of Colorado. Older brother of Janice Funk Schneider. Beloved Uncle of her girls Deanna Joy and Christina Rose.
Jim graduated from James Madison HS/Milwaukee and promptly joined the United States Air Force. Promoted to Staff Sergeant he spent most of his deployment in Germany near the river Trier where our ancestors lived.
Packer ticket holder and Brewer fan. He loved nothing better than sports. Except his dog Bud (Casey).
Per his wishes, there will be no viewing or public services. Like his brother we wanted to return his ashes to the Earth in a place he particularly enjoyed. Rest in peace!
