James Michael Gottschalk

August 2, 1952 ~ October 10, 2020 (age 68)


James (Jimmy) Michael Gottschalk of Cheboygan, Michigan passed in peace on October 10 at the age of 68.

He was a kind and loving partner to his wife, Sandy, as well as an amazing father to his four children Nolan, Armena, Krean and Cody.  He had a deep love for his grandchildren Jayce, Grady and Celia and his five sisters, Carol, Susie, Cathy, Diane, Mary and  brother, David.

Jimmy’s tireless love and devotion to his family were evident throughout his life.  He was always there for them during their ups and downs and taught them to enjoy what life has to offer.

A distinguished veteran, Jimmy, served two tours in Vietnam.  He continued in government work after his return where he worked for Tacom in Warren, MI.

Jimmy was a storyteller and will fondly be remembered as the life of the party.  He loved being outdoors, hunting and spending time with his friends and family.

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”

A time of gathering will be held in the Spring.
