James Geiser, age 70, of Chilton, died on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at his home in Chilton.  He was born May 13, 1950 in Chilton, son of Alois & Violet (Wagner) Geiser.  James married Phyllis Birkholtz on April 26, 1969 at St. Mary Catholic Church in Stockbridge; she preceded him in death on October 22, 2018.  

Jim had been employed as a welder at Brenner Tank in Fond du Lac until his retirement.  

In his younger years, he enjoyed time out on the golf course, going bowling and taking motorcycle rides with Phyllis.  Jim’s free time was often spent woodworking, but he most loved time spent babysitting his grandchildren and great grandchildren.  He was a man with a good, sarcastic sense of humor who was always quick with BS and was able to think of ‘come backs’ quicker than anyone.  

Survivors include his son: Jason (Angela) Geiser; a son-in-law: Dale Schreiber; 9 grandchildren: Jacob, Caleb, Ethan “EE”, Jamie, Kendra, Rachel, Neleah, Zach & MacKenzie; 2 great grandchildren: Oliver & Bailey; his siblings: Bob (Janet) Kress, Lucille (Jerry) Hauser, Ann (Conrad) Kopitzke, George (Nita)  Geiser, Gerald (Shirley) Geiser, Joe (Pauline) Geiser,  Diane (Jim) Kasper, Rita (Glen) Pingel, Elizabeth (Dan) Herms, Peter (Debbie) Geiser; and his sisters-in-law: June Geiser, Bonnie Weber & Cheryl Kramer.  He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.  

Jim was preceded in death by his parents; his wife: Phyllis; 2 daughters: Amy Geiser & Shelly Geiser; brothers: Elmer (Barb) Wagner, Tom Geiser; a brother-in-law: Jim Weber; and 3 nephews: David Weber, Christopher Kasper & Gary Kress.

Funeral service will be at 5:00 pm on Thursday, July 30, 2020 at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton.  Burial will be in the St. Mary Catholic Cemetery in Chilton.  Friends may call at the funeral home from 2:00 pm until 4:45 pm on Thursday, July 30, 2020.
To the whole Geiser family: I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. May you remember all the good times you have shared.

We have been blessed to be neighbors for the past 30 years. We have shared laughs, hugs and tears. We will miss Jim's quick wit and sarcasm for sure. He certainly was loved by my family--Jim met his match with out son Matt. RIP my friend. Give Matt a hug for us.

Yes, Jim's quick wit was so lovable. What a great guy.
May he rest in peace.
