James Huempfner

James Huempfner, age 41 of Minocqua, died on Monday, Nov. 9, 2020 at Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa. Jim was born on Jan. 20, 1979 in Rhinelander.

Jim married Ashlee Bornowski on April 15, 2015.

Jim lived hard, worked hard and loved harder. He enjoyed his life to the fullest and he collected friends, all along the way. He had a smile that you couldn't forget. When he smiled everyone around him could feel his energy.

Jim loved his wife and kids more than anything in the world. He always looked forward to holidays when all the family could get together and catch up. He loved camping, traveling, cooking, country music, politics, and socializing with family and friends.

Jim will forever be missed and left us all with the best of memories. Fly high our angel. "I love your love the most."

Jim is survived by his wife, Ashlee Huempfner, and by his children Brett and Braylee; his parents Gabe Huempfner and Virginia (Phillip) Root; his siblings Tricia (Dave) Petrowski, Rich (Randy) Huempfner, Gabe Huempfner, PJ Root, and Tiffany (Josh) Root.

He is further survived by many other family and friends.

A memorial gathering for Jim will be held on Saturday, Nov. 14 from 3 to 6 p.m. at Nimsgern Funeral Home Chapel in Woodruff.
