James "Jimbo" John Martin II

December 27, 1965 ~ October 1, 2021 (age 55)


James “Jimbo” John Martin II, age 55, of Sheboygan, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 1, 2021, at St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan. 

Jimbo was born to James Martin and Honey Lee Layton on December 27, 1965, at St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan. He attended Sheboygan South High School. James worked several jobs over his lifetime, but he mainly worked as a handyman.  

Jimbo loved any sport that he could play or watch. He was an avid bowler and was very skilled. He was known as an entertainer when he was pitching for his softball games. Whether it was on or off the mound, he was always entertaining anyone he was with. He enjoyed watching all sports, especially the Dallas Cowboys and the Brewers and Badgers. One of the more surprising things that Jimbo loved to do was to bake.  

Jimbo is survived by his mother, Honey Lee Layton; sisters, Paula Lehmann and Lana Marie Lohse; nieces and nephews; great-niece and great-nephew, Corrin and Corbin; and many other relatives and friends. Jimbo is also survived by his loving cat, Biggs. 

Jimbo was preceded in death by his father, James “Jumbo” Martin; uncle, Charlie Martin; paternal grandparents, Charlie and Caroline Martin; and maternal grandparents, Harold and Mary (Ives) Wilson. 

A Celebration of Life will be held for Jimbo at a later date.
