James L. "Jim" Sommers, age 50, died peacefully on November 18, 2016, at St. Elizabeth Hospital after a brief illness with an aggressive respiratory disease. He was born on January 10, 1966, in Madison, Wisconsin, the son of Alvin and Ronna (Smith) Sommers.

Our friend had a love for a good party, the outdoors, playing euchre, cooking, four wheeling, snowmobiling, camping, fishing and the Packers. What he treasured most was sharing these things with his boys. He loved his boys so much, spending time with them was his priority.

Jim is survived by his sons, Lance and Spencer; a sister, Deb (Steve) Crocker, Memphis, TN; brother, Chris Sommers, Edgerton, WI; many other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
