Jim was born December 3, 1928, in rural Johnson County, the son of Frank and Loretta (Scheetz) Neuzil. He graduated from Cosgrove High School. He married Laurel Cook at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Iowa City on August 31, 1950. He served in the United States Army.

He was a member of St Peter’s Catholic Church and was a lifelong Johnson County Farmer. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, trap shooting, gardening, especially tending to his sweet corn patch. He was an avid Hawkeye fan and loved his John Deere tractors. Later in life he enjoyed making scroll saw, fret work clocks, shelves, butterflies, etc. He took great pleasure in giving them away.

He and Laurel enjoyed spending winters in Everglades City, Florida where Jim enjoyed the weather, fishing, visiting with friends, and playing tennis.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to St. Jude Medical Hospital or St. Peter’s Catholic Church.

He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years; his children: Kathy (Rick) Funk, Susan (Tom) Hoyt and Jimmy (Patty) Neuzil; eight grandchildren: Heather Bergantzel,
