A visitation to celebrate his life will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 at Herman-Taylor Funeral Home in Wisconsin Rapids.

He was born on March 24, 1945 to Joseph and Lucille (Perry) Mohr in Springfield, IL.  He is a 1964 graduate of Lanphier High School in Springfield.  He married his high school sweetheart, Susan Fahrenbacher, in 1966.

He retired in 2011.

Morris.

James was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying trips to his favorite spot in North Dakota for fishing and water fowl hunting, and trekking to “deer camp” in Bayfield, WI for many years.
