James Morris (1963 – 2011)
James Edward “Jimbo” Morris, a life-long Kenosha resident, died Thursday, February 3, 2011 at Aurora Medical Center Intensive Care Unit. He was born October 12, 1963 and attended local schools. In grade school he played in the CYC PeeWee football league, CYO basketball and wrestling teams. In high school he discovered his love of fishing and hunting.
He worked for many years at the Midtown Bar and Restaurant. He also worked at Ultra-Fab Machine Shop. For many years he participated in dart and pool teams.
Jimbo was a nurturer and displayed that in his garden and in his “watching out” for others who needed help. He loved the Packers, fishing shows, hunting shows, blues and jazz. Or sitting in a boat or on Lake Michigan’s rocks fishing for his next catch. He loved the family farm in Forest County.
