James Oscar Stauch Jr., 42, passed away on Saturday, Aug. 22, 2009. He was born on March 7, 1967, in Anaheim, Calif. Jim grew up in Costa Mesa, Calif., and at the age of 9, moved to Albert Lea, Minn. He graduated from Albert Lea High School in 1985. He worked for Service Master in Albert Lea, then started at Wal-Mart. He transferred to the Wal-Mart in Kingman in 2001. He was head of daytime maintenance and worked for Wal-Mart for 12-1/2 years.

He loved his three dogs, "Jaz," "Bear" and "J.J." and really enjoyed his work and fellow employees. He will be so missed by his two special friends and co-workers, Jaime and Ken, and a dear friend in Minnesota, Bob Burke and his wife, Teresa.

He is survived by his parents, James and Eleanor; sisters, Debra (Martin) Yttrevold of Albert Lea and Pam Stauch-Altman of Needles, Calif.; nieces, April Habana, Tara Yokiel and Jennafer Thomas; nephew, Martin Modderman Jr.; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Sutton Memorial Funeral Home is handling the cremation.

Besides being such a good son, he was our best friend.
