A celebration of life will be held at Dorchester Memorial Hall on Thursday, July 2 from 4-8 p.m. Military Honors provided by the Colby VFW Post No. 2227. Jim was born on Feb. 19, 1950, the son of Hank and Rose (Pollack) Kittl in Abbotsford. Jim served the U. S. Army during the Vietnam War. He was united in marriage to Dorothy Resler on Jan. 4, 1973 in Sheboygan. Jim had several jobs over the years until he retired from Marathon Cheese Corp. Jim always had people laughing with his jokes. He could light up the room with his sense of humor. He enjoyed fishing, NASCAR, hunting, woodworking, tractor pulls (watching and participating) and gambling. Most importantly, his joy in life was his grandchildren and great-grandchild.

Jim is survived by his wife of 47 years, Dorothy; his children, Gwen Kittl of Abbotsford, Jesse (Trisha) Kittl of Abbotsford, Adam (Brandi) Kittl of Marshfield and Heather (Clayton) Zittlow of Whittlesey; eight grandchildren, Keylee, Jayden, Cortney, Hunter, Matthew, Lucas, Samantha and Megan; and his great-granddaughter, Averie.
