I'm so sorry for your loss. I worked with Jim years ago when I was working at WSB. He was a great guy who was well liked and respected. He will be missed! You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Dear Kindler Family, Our hearts are heavy with the news of Jim's passing. He is heavenly healed now which we rejoice in! We were neighbors for 32 years! Being a young couple buying their first and only home, we were so welcomed by Jim and Penny. Jim lent his expertise many times to help us out with many projects and seemed to have every tool in the shed that was ever needed! He also readily lent a hand with snow blowing our apron many times over the years as our snow thrower didn't cut the mounds blocking us in, but JIms heavy duty blower did the job! We loved his team dedication to the Packers and Badgers, proudly displaying each flag on game day! As our family grew with dogs and children, he was a favorite neighbor of all. Helping us out many times with dog sitting and being the fun neighbor with dog treats always ready! He was so kind to our boys, always encouraging in conversations. Jim so loved Penny often referring to her as his "bride" it melted our hearts. His undeniable love for his family was always evident and so very proud of his 3 awesome grandsons! His "happy place" was on Lake Nokomis always looking forward to opening the cottage for the season of fun! Thanks for the memories Jim, you will be missed but never forgotten! Rest in Peace Dear Neighbor.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
