Obituary

James Joseph Gauthier, age 58, resident of Edmore, ND, passed away unexpectedly at home on December 5, 2021 after a brief illness.  Jim was born July 10, 1963 in Manitowoc, WI to Omar and Dorothy Gauthier.  He attended school in Manitowoc, graduating with the class of 1981 from Lincoln High School.  On June 4, 1988 Jim married the love of his life, Christine Rollo, at Maribel Caves in Denmark, WI.  They renewed their vows in Cabo San Lucas in 2009.  During his professional career, Jim has worked at Kaysun Plastics in Manitowoc, WI, Algoma Hardwoods in Algoma, WI, EVCO Plastics in Oshkosh and DeForest, WI, and Alliance Laundry Systems in Ripon, WI.  At the time of his death, he worked at Marvin Windows in Grafton, ND.  He was an avid sportsman excelling in trapping, fishing, and especially duck hunting.  In 2020 they moved to ND to live out their dreams, something they had wanted to do since 1990.  Jim was a great mentor and loved to share his love for hunting and fishing with anyone that had a passion for it.
