The Guest Book is expired.
James (Jim) G. Garrity, 61, longtime resident of Green Bay and new resident of Sheboygan, passed away unexpectedly at home, Friday, June 8, 2012.
Jim was born July 25, 1950 in Howard, Wisconsin to the late James and Mildred (Van Zeeland) Garrity.
Jim served in the U.S. Army as an MP at Fort Leavenworth. He was a longtime employee of Shade Printing and, before his retirement in April of 2011, he was employed by Independent Printing of DePere.
Jim was honest, loving, sweet and wise. He loved his new winter home in Arizona and wholly enjoyed history, movies, NASCAR, table games, shuffleboard, swimming and his new golf cart.
Survivors include his "special lady" Eileen Ledeboer (and her family), a son, two daughters, two grandchildren, three brothers and two sisters, as well as many new and dear friends both in Sheboygan and Mesa, Arizona. He was preceded in death by one brother.
