James R. Fieck, 80, of Green Bay, WI, passed away after dealing with dementia for five years on Tuesday, September 10, 2019. He was born on May 20, 1939, to the late Alvin and Julia (Straka) Fieck. He finished the 8th grade at Washington Junior High. When he was 20 years old, he was asked to serve for his country in the Marine Corps as an Infantry officer. He served for ten years and was a part of the Vietnam War. When he was honorably discharged, James came back to Green Bay and worked at Vic's Theater. VanBoxtel Ford was where he worked before he retired. He enjoyed videotaping, hanging out with friends at Napalese Lounge, watching WWF on payperview, listening to music, and spending time with family at bonfires. He liked to tinker with cars and electronics. He was also an avid Packer fan and spent football season in front of the TV watching them play.
James is survived by his two sisters: Alvina Coopman and Jean Fieck-Williams; two nephews: Gerald (Cheryl) Coopman and Robert (Jesse) Coopman; four nieces: Brenda (Jeff) Mastey, Ivy (Louie) Williamson, Cheri Williams, and Rhonda (Troy) Willems; and many great-nieces and nephews. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother-in-law John Coopman.
James family would like to thank Parkview Manor for their compassion and care, along with Compassus Hospice for the last 11 months.
