James A. "Skinny" Madorin passed away peacefully on Feb. 19, 2020, at the age of 82 in Bloomer, Wis., in the comfort of his home.

To all who knew James, he was a unique, charismatic and caring individual who touched the lives of all who knew him with his frivolous sense of humor, ambition and strong work ethic. James treasured getting in his tractor and watching nature from his porch. He was an avid news watcher and paper reader at the end.

He is survived by his wife, Connie; his children, James B. "Nim" and his wife Diane; Scott A. "Harn" and his wife Tammy; Thomas C. "Herman" and his wife Patti; sister, Shirley "Gee" Schulte; numerous grandchildren and a smaller slew of great-grandchildren.
