Celebration of Life this summer
James Allen Kromschroeder, age 65, died Monday, February 15, 2021 at his home in Hudson, Wisconsin.
Jim was born to Roy and Lorraine (Priefer) Kromschroeder in St. Paul, on October 14, 1955. He grew up on the eastside of St. Paul and, after graduating from Harding High School, went on to serve in the United States Navy.
After retiring from 3M in 2002, Jim had more time to tend to his yard and tinker in his pole barn. On April 8, 2003, Jim was united in marriage to Susan Walther in Las Vegas, NV. The two enjoyed spending time with their family and six grandchildren.
Jim was all about friends, motorcycles, and custom cars, a passion which he dedicated much of his free time to. He loved the yearly pilgrimages to the Sturges Motorcycle Rally on one of his many Harleys, local bike runs, and other trips he took with his friends and family. When not on his bike, he enjoyed camping at Pike Bay on Cass Lake, a place he frequented both as a young man and later with his own family.
Jim will forever remain in the hearts his wife of 17 years, Susan; son, Nick (Jennifer) Kromschroeder; daughter, Alicia (Ryan) Bueckers; grandchildren: Abby, Skylar, Brey, Katie, RJ, and Gigi; brother, Jerry Kromschroeder; Sister Jan (Harry) Braaten and many nieces, nephews, friends, and extended family. Jim is preceded in death by his parents; and sister-in-law, Sherry Kromschroeder.
A Memorial Gathering and Celebration of Life will be held this summer when the motorcycles can hit the road. In the meantime, cards and memorials may be sent for the Kromschroeder family to the O’Connell Family Funeral Home, 520 S. 11th Street, Hudson, WI. 54016.
