William James (Jim) MIDDLEBROOK Obituary
Of Pacific Beach, California, Jim was born on New Year's Day, January 1, 1932 and passed away on Friday, September 7, 2018. He was preceded in death by his wife, Peggy. Jim was born in New Richmond, WI fondly known as the City Beautiful. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin at River Falls and Marquette University with a degree in Chemistry and Civil Engineering.

After receiving what he called the best advice of his life, to "move to a big city", he and Peggy moved out West to Los Angeles with their son, Jeff. They fell in love with sunny Southern California and went on to raise their family in La Canãda. Jim and Peg retired and moved to San Diego in 1997. Jim enjoyed exercise classes at the Y and was a proud member of the Balboa Men's Golf Club where he fixed divots on Mondays, played golf on Wednesdays, marshaled on Fridays and met some of his best buddies on and off the golf course. Jim is survived his sons Jeff (Cindi), John (Lynn), Mark (Dori); daughters Ann, Liz (Andrew), Sally (Greg); and his grandchildren, Will (Kayla), Jack (Marissa), Haley, Blair and Bryn. Services have been held at St. Brigid's Catholic Church of Pacific Beach. Legacy Funeral & Cremation, 7043 University Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91942 charged with arrangements.
