Jim Case was the life of the party, a true social butterfly who was never shy about being the first one on the dance floor. Jim was born in Lansing, Michigan on November 29, 1949 and was preceded in death by his parents, Harold R. Case and Ireta R. Henderson. He passed away on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Hanson Hospice Center in Stevensville.
Jim loved life, his family - especially his wife and life partner, Roberta - and the occasional golf game, even though “Woody” never quite qualified for the Masters. Jim’s heart sang the loudest when he spent time with his grandkids, Scott and Staci, and of course he was thankful his son Jay and daughter-in-law, Amanda made that possible. As a member of the U.S. Navy, he was even more proud that Jay served his country in the military as well. The Bahamas were Jim’s happy place especially with Roberta by his side; if reincarnation were possible, Jim would want
to be a beach bum with a coconut rum in hand on the beach in Nassau.
Jim also leaves behind a step daughter, Janice (Jason) Shei and her children, Sidney, Sara, and AJ; two brothers, Jerry (Shawn) and Rod, and a sister, Vonda; several aunts and uncles; and many cousins who were truly Jim’s closest friends - and his beloved dog Jake. Jim retired from the State of Michigan and had been working part-time for DK Security. Jim was cremated and there will be a private family celebration of life at a later date. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations please be made to the Baroda American Legion Post #345, 9214 1st Street, Baroda, MI 49101.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Pike Funeral and Cremation Services, Boyd Chapel. 9191 Red Arrow Hwy, Bridgman.
