Being self-employed in medical device sales, Jim was a hard working and honest businessman. He was generous, humble and caring.
Jim was born July 4, 1954 and never missed the chance to put on a huge fireworks display. He enjoyed sailing on various waters and spending time with his family and friends at his lake home on Big Chippewa Lake, where his beloved dog, Gracie, was always by his side.
Jim was a loving father to his daughter, Katie (Derek) Lynde and to his son, Matthew (Brandi) Knoepfle. He was also a proud grandfather to Conner, Olivia and Morgan.
He was preceded in death by his father.
Jim is survived by his parents, Morris and Evelyn Wirth; his sister, Cheryl (Gus) Sellheim, brother, Howard (Sharon) Knoepfle, sister, Wendy (Skip) Lindback, brother, Mark (Wilhelmina) Wirth; many loving nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. We love you, Jim, and you will be greatly missed. Read more about Jim’s life at www.caringbridge.org/visit/jimknoepfle.
