Stoughton – James J. “Jim” Whitcomb, age 62, of Stoughton, sadly passed away on Tuesday November 17, 2020. Jim was born in Madison on February 19, 1958 and was a graduate of LaFollette High School in 1976.
He married the love of his life Doreen Cooley on August 12, 1989. They had two wonderful children together, Marsha in 1990 and Mitchell in 1993. Shortly after having the kids they decided to move to Stoughton where he lived until his passing.
Jim had a big passion for golfing, hunting and fishing, and played cards every chance he could. He was always the one making jokes or telling stories about life. His laugh was one you loved to hear because it made you laugh. The other big passion was spending time with family and friends, especially his grandchildren.
Jim was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Audrey (Green) Whitcomb; and in-laws Dick and Pat (Bohne) Cooley; and his nephew David Cooley.
Jim is survived by his wife Doreen; daughter Marsha (Thor) Cardinal ; son Mitch (Ashley) Whitcomb; his grandchildren Ella and Aiden; his sister and brother-in-law Julie (Whitcomb) and Mike Perry; his two nieces Megan (Perry) and Chris Krumwied and Kelsey Perry and Brandon Burger; and many nieces and nephew and great nieces and nephew.
Jim will be very much missed.
