Nancy and family,

I am sorry to hear about Jim. I have known him for many, many years and back in the day he could beat most of us in the game of sheephead during lunch break. Outside of work I would see him frequently at the library. I think he read every book they had there. The last time I saw him was in the parking lot at Copps in Plover. We had a nice visit. He was a pleasure to know. My sincere condolences to the whole family.

I had the pleasure of being a co-worker with Jim in the office at Port Edwards. My fondest memory of working with Jim is when Georgia-Pacific purchased the facility in 1990 and said that on time delivery needed to be measured, and that the traffic department would do it.
We (I) didn't even know what an on time delivery was, much less how to measure it.
Jim to the rescue. He started applying a manual measurement process to orders. We all learned what needed to be done through Jim's work. The process was eventually put on the computer, but that programming would have never been successful without the work Jim did at the very beginning of the project.
I enjoyed his company, and admired his professionalism and dedication. Certainly he was one of the easiest persons I have ever worked with.
Sorry for your loss, Mertes Family. He was a great guy that will be missed.

We are very sorry to hear of your loss. From reading the obit, we can obviously see he was surrounded by a tremendous amount of love. No wonder he fought so hard to keep living. He did not want to leave you all. Now, he will be carried in your hearts forever and be your angel from above.

Sorry for your loss.
Mr. Mertes was my relief at Adoration at the Marian Center over the past years. He was very devoted. Your family are in my prayers and thoughts.
