Obituary for James Anthony Charniak

James Anthony Charniak, 46, Oconto, passed away Sunday, April 22, 2018 at Bellin Hospital, Oconto, after a hard fought battle with testicular cancer. Jim was born June 29, 1971 in Green Bay to James and Peggy (Burkel) Charniak. He married Christine Jenkins on November 5, 1994. Always a dedicated, loyal and hard working employee, he worked for Richco Structures, Fed Ex Ground, LeTourneau Plastics, and most recently Birdseye Dairy. Jim enjoyed softball, weight lifting, and was an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers. He truly loved spending time with family and friends, book sales with Karissa, Tae Kwon Do with Kyle, playing cards with the guys, (Andy, Jesse, Jeff, John and Dave), and golfing with Jason. Jim was an excellent cookie baker, master griller, and truly enjoyed a great steak, cherry cheesecake and popcorn. Jim had an upbeat and positive attitude, giving words of encouragement and advice, and could always put a smile on your face. Jim always gave everything his all and will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by everyone who knew him.
