James Stillmank


James William “Jim” Stillmank of Grafton,  a loving husband, father, grandfather and brother, passed away at Aurora Hospital surrounded by his family on Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018, at the age of 74.

Jim was born on Jan. 27, 1944, in Melrose Park, Ill., to James P. Stillmank. and Gladys (nee Hughes) Dullere.

Jim was preceded in death by his father, mother and grandparents.

Jim was a captain in the U.S. Army, a Vietnam War veteran and a Purple Heart recipient. Upon completion of his military duties, Jim attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, where he received his master’s degree in psychology.

Jim was a 29-year employee of the Port Washington Saukville School District, serving as an elementary school counselor at Dunwiddie and Lincoln elementary schools.

Jim, a self-appointed weather historian, will be remembered for his quirky sense of humor, his compassionate and generous spirit, his unparalleled love and pride in his family and his impressive banana sticker collection.
