Obituary for James Lisiecki
James Lisiecki, 71, passed away suddenly on May 2 from post-surgical complications. Jim was a member of Gold Wing Touring Association Iowa Chapter L; on the Board of Directors of the Council Bluffs US Bowling Congress; coached the Youth Bowling League at Thunderbowl; belonged to the Council Bluffs Fish & Game Education & Protective Assn; was an American Legion member; volunteered for more than a decade with the Boy Scouts, and was a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts. He served six years in the Air Force Reserves. For many years he was an avid Citizens Band Radio Operator, and had studied for his Ham Radio License. He loved to bowl, fish, and care for his friends. Jim was born in Milwaukee, WI on February 13, 1943. He was a brakeman, conductor, and yardmaster for the Chicago & North Western Railroad from 1967 until the merger with Union Pacific, and retired in 2003. Married to Melanie in 2005, they spent nine very happy years together. He is survived by wife Melanie (Elliott); son Joseph (Dawn), daughters Theresa Szczublewski (Christopher) and Denise; granddaughter Harleah Bergeron (Brandon); great grandchildren Raelyn and Jaiden; sister Antoinette Johnson (Jerold); many cousins and too many wonderful friends to count - all of whom were deeply loved and cherished.
