He was born in Sheboygan on May 2, 1947, a son of Verna (Nonhof) and the late Alvin Hoopman.

Jim attended Sheboygan grade schools and graduated from Sheboygan South High School in 1965. Following high school, he received his electrical degree from LTC. He worked for over 40 years at Alliant Energy (WI Power and Light) until his retirement.

On October 25, 1975, he married Deborah Landers at Bethany Reformed Church in Sheboygan.

Jim enjoyed hunting, fishing, trap and skeet shooting, gardening, and tinkering around the house. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.

He is survived by his wife, Deb, and their two sons: John (Robin) Hoopman of Plymouth, and Beau (Morgan) Hoopman of Madison; and six grandchildren: Johanna, Josefine, Rheinhardt, Rhys, Braam, and Leland.

Jim is further survived by his mother: Verna Hoopman of Sheboygan; brother: Robert (Phyllis) Hoopman of Plymouth; two sisters: Lynda (Steve) Luedtke of Muskego, and Beth (Russell) Allen of Random Lake; two sisters-in-law: Beth (Ricky) Raeder of Sheboygan, and Kelly (Mark) Crary of Elkhart Lake; as well as nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, and parents-in-law: Gregory and Donna Landers.

Following Jim's wishes, cremation has taken place and a celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

God bless Jim, who was a close personal friend, and someone who will hold a special place in my heart. The many things that we shared at a time when he, I, and his brother Bob did many things together is a time that will remain with me forever. Jim's infectious sense of humor and wry wit kept him in a place that I and many of his friends considered him a conversationalist entertainer. It hurts to even acknowledge the loss of my good friend. May the family and all those close to Jim please accept my most sincere condolences in this sorrowful time.

I enjoyed working with Jim Hoopman for many years at Edgewater. I understood the pride and love he had for his wife Deb, and sons John and Beau. If Edgewater had a hall of fame he would be the first inductee. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.
