James "Papa Jim" Myszewski

October 28, 1965 ~ November 12, 2021 (age 56)


James S. “Papa Jim” Myszewski, age 56, of Sheboygan passed away unexpectedly on Friday, November 12, 2021, at his home.

Jim was born on October 28, 1965, to Ronald and Janet (Janz) Myszewski in Milwaukee, WI. He graduated with the Class of 1984 at Riverside High School in Milwaukee. After high school he married Barbara Jo Forsythe. Together they raised three children, Jimmy, Joey, and Scottie.

Jim was a very loving father, grandfather, brother, and friend. There was nothing he enjoyed more than spending time with his grandchildren. He loved getting together for family meals and cooking for everyone – especially his famous spaghetti sauce.

Jim was an avid outdoorsman – he loved to hunt and sit around the campfire up north. He also greatly enjoyed the time he spent bowling with his friends, playing horseshoes, and playing softball. When his boys were growing up, he coached them as they played baseball throughout their school years. Jim never missed a Wisconsin sports game. Even if he had to record it, there was no way he wouldn’t watch the Packers, Brewers, Badgers, or Bucks in their latest game.

Jim made many friends over the course of his career at Nemak.

Jim will be remembered by his three sons, Jimmy, Joey, and Scottie (Jerrica); grandchildren, Peyton Barbara, Jaxx James Dennis, Jett Steven, Khloie Kay, and Mayven Jo; brother, Robert Myszewski; nephew, Robbie (Amanda) Myszewski; niece, Sarah (Max) Kobold; and other relatives and friends.

Jim was preceded in death by his former wife, Barbara Jo; parents, Ronald and Janet; and brother, Dennis Myszewski.

A Celebration of Jim’s Life will be held at a later date. He will be inurned near his family at Calvary Cemetery in Sheboygan.
