James Spurgin, age 93 years young, left us to be with his loving wife Muriel surrounded by his family on his mother’s birthday, January 28. He was born on June 29, 1927 to Betsy and James Spurgin Sr. James attended Boys Tech, joined the Merchant Marines and served one year with the US Army. Upon returning home, he met and married the love of his life, Muriel (nee Brunow) and they celebrated 72 married years.

Together they raised 6 children in Germantown, WI. Jim was a retired Teamster, worked for Theodore Froemming and Central Redi Mix. After retiring, they moved to central Wisconsin as Jim was an avid fisherman and hunter. In their final years, they returned to Washington County to be closer to family.

Jim will be deeply missed by family and friends. He had a great sense of humor that never quit, a short temper and was quite the prankster. All the children loved him as he loved the children. Everybody’s grandpa.

Rest in peace Papa Jim. You will be missed.

James is survived by his children, James III (Suzanne), Cassandra (Gary) Grande, John (Suzy) Jeffrey, Christi (John) Otterstein and Cheryl Spurgin; 13 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and sister-in-law Shirley Landt.

He is preceded in death by his beautiful wife Muriel; parents; brother Harold and sister Joyce Barnes.

Private services will be held.

Our sincerest and deepest sympathy to the entire Spurgin family on the loss of "Big" Jim. We remember him as a great conversationalist who was always interested in what was going on in our lives, and he had a fantastic memory for recalling details and names. We loved his soothing voice and infectious laugh. "Everyone's grandpa" will be greatly missed. Dave and Chris Landt
