Obituary for James H. Uselding Sr.

James H. Uselding Sr., 81, of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, passed peacefully from complications of heart disease. The Lord called him to his heavenly home on February 1, 2020. Jim is survived by his loving wife Sally (Nee Jandl) of 61 years. Dedicated father of Debra (Gilbert) McDaniel, Donna (Roger) Erickson, James H. Uselding II, and Sarah Weinrich. Dear brother of Joyce (Richard) Zimdars and Thomas (Dawn) Uselding. Further survived by 12 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. Jim was preceded in death by one grandchild, one great grandchild, and his older brother.

Jim served his country in the Marine Corps. After returning home, he worked in construction, followed by ironworking, where he started “REI” his own steel erecting business. Having the entrepreneurial spirit, Jim joined his son-inlaw in creating Family Tree Residential Facilities Inc., group homes for the elderly, where he helped serve hundreds of residents for the past 34 years. In his spare time, he found great joy in selling Christmas trees at “Uselding’s” Christmas tree lot, delivering top soil, and snow plowing. Jim was an Ozaukee County supervisor for 22 years. He received the “Presidents Award” for sponsoring a senior softball team for 27 years. Jim enjoyed quality time with family, fishing trips to Canada, camping, and attending family sporting events to name a few. Other hobbies included riding his Harley, reading up on history, and attending his weekly bible study.

Jim’s family would like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Goniu and Family Tree’s dedicated staff for the wonderful care he received during his final days residing at the Harrison home.
