Obituary for James "Jim" E. Sproessig

Memorial Services will be 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 28, 2017, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Princeton for James “Jim” E. Sproessig, 70 of Zimmerman, who passed away at the Elim Home in Princeton on Saturday, October 21, 2017.

James Edward Sproessig was born on November 29, 1946, in Elk River to Oscar and Genevieve (Nunn) Sproessig. He grew up in Princeton and graduated from Princeton High School in 1964. He proudly served his country in the United States Navy with multiple tours in Vietnam. Jim worked as a welder and forklift driver at Hoffman Engineering for 27 years and during his retirement he worked at Menards before fully retiring. He loved deer hunting at the shack with the guys, golfing as much as possible, playing cribbage, stopping over for coffee with friends, telling and retelling stories of past, spending time with his family, and cheering for his grandkids during basketball and volleyball. Jim was a one of a kind guy who made friends with everybody, he was light-hearted, goofy, loyal, always had a great sense of humor, and could brighten anyone’s day.

Survivors include his children, Curt (Cameo) of Faribault, Tracy (fiancé David Larson) Bailey of Princeton; stepchildren, Gene (Nicole) Tallant of Milaca, Jesse (Jessica) Tallant of St. Cloud, and Jennifer Robertson of Crosby; brothers, Allan of Texas, Larry (Carol) of Otsego, and Kenny (Mae) of Braham; ten grandchildren, Katherine, Dustyne, Michaela, Christine, Savanna, Alex, James, Truman, David, Cameron; one great-grandchild; and many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother David; sister-in-law, Millie Sproessig; and nephew, David, Jr.
