Felix, James "Jack" (1 APR 1955 – 14 MAY 2018)

Greenwood - James (Jim) Felix, 63, of Greenwood, WI, passed away May 14, 2018, at Froedtert Hospital, Milwaukee.

He was born April 1, 1955, to John (Jack) and Verdelle (Turnquist) Felix. Jim was raised in Greenwood, where he graduated from high school in 1973.

After attending technical college in Eau Claire and running a painting business in the Greenwood area, in 1977 he moved to Austin, Texas, where he was employed as a master painter for J & J Painting and Contracting. In 1988, he and two co-workers purchased J & J, which specialized in painting large residential homes and commercial buildings in the greater Austin area.

While in Austin, on October 15, 1983, Jim married Mary L. Meyer, originally from Thorp, WI. They lived in the Austin area until 2007, when they returned to Greenwood where Jim opened a gunsmith business, Viking Arms. Because he was an avid hunter and gun enthusiast, gunsmithing was a perfect fit for him.

In addition, Jim enjoyed cooking and barbecuing, being well-known for his smoked briskets and marinades (Yum!) As a result, many good times and much laughter were shared with family and friends, including the Greenwood Good Guys (the GGGs). Jim also enjoyed talking with anybody he met wherever he traveled.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Verdelle; his in-laws, Ted and Rosalie Meyer; sisters-in-law, Sandy Felix and Pam Felix; and brother-in-law, Brian Briggs.

Jim is survived by his loving wife, Mary Lou; brothers, Douglas (Priscilla) Felix and Bruce (Deb) Felix; niece Nicky Felix; brothers-in-law, Ray Kodl, Dennis Meyer, and Dennis Klick; sisters-in-law, Nancy Kodl, Arlene Meyer, Donna Meyer-Klick, and Franny Meyer-Briggs; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Arrangements are pending.
