Obituary for James Michael Chaplin

James Michael “Mike” Chaplin, 63, of Oconto, went home to be with our Lord Jesus Christ, October 30th, 2019. After a long agonizing battle with the VA to treat his service connected injuries and pain, his heart failed from the stress. Born February 28th, 1956 to the late Glenn and Janette (Geer) Chaplin Sr. in Illinois and grew up in Missouri. He served in the United States Marine Corps. After serving his country, he moved his young family to Oconto, WI. He spent many years in the construction industry with his own company, and even ran for Mayor of Oconto. He enjoyed painting, writing, fellowship, and sharing God’s word to help others. He will be greatly missed by many.
He is survived by his siblings, Al (Liz) Chaplin, Kathy (Doug) Collier, Debbie (Fred) Artz, Pat Chaplin; previously married to, Rebecca (Mike “AJ”) Rach; children, Melissa (Dennis) Challis, Katie (Eric) Mommaerts, Lyndsay Chaplin (Jordan Lardinois), and Joe Chaplin (Trista Hergert); grandchildren, Kriss Frewerd, Calie Frewerd and Steven Mommaerts, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Glenn and Janette Chaplin Sr., aunt, Goldie Williams, and nephew, Adam Chaplin.
