The family would like to thank all of those who visited Jim in the last few weeks. Friends of old and friends of new. Family that was near or family that was far. All of your conversations and time spent with Jim made an impression on him and us as a family. While Jim always tried to fly under the radar, he had an incredibly big heart and was loved by all. This was shown by the number of visitors that came to the house, phone calls and vehicles in the car parade. It was great to see Jim wave or give a thumbs up. The smile on his face as he watched the parade was priceless.
Survivors include his parents, Mark and Lorraine (Servais) Malin; siblings Loree (Leo) Nickelotti and Jane Malin (Gary Trofka) nieces and nephews; Lanae Nickelotti (Matt Batzel), Lorenzo (Kelly) Nickelotti, Emily Trofka and Jacob Trofka and great niece and nephews; Reuden Batzel; Logan, Winnie, and Luke Nickelotti.
The family would also like to thank Jason and Krissy of Gundersen Hospice for all the love and kindness you showed Jim. You helped make Jim’s journey more comfortable.
To anyone that knew Jim, it should be no surprise that he requested a private family memorial. The Seland Funeral Home is assisting the family. Condolences may be given at selandsfuneralhome.com. Memorials may be sent to family or in care of Seland Funeral Home, P.O. Box 217 Coon Valley, WI 54623.
