James Urban

December 9, 1943 — January 11, 2023


James Robey Urban, age 79 of Montello, passed away on Wednesday, January 11, 2023 at his home.  He was born on December 9, 1943 in Milwaukee, WI to Jack and Alice (Robey) Urban.

Jim will always be remembered by many, especially his children. His children will always remember all the good times at the lake and the holiday celebrations at grandma and grandpa's house. Throughout his life, Jim had a love of riding motorcycles and he loved to be in the woods riding his ATV. In his younger years, he enjoyed hunting and fishing and in his later years, going to the gun range with his brother, Bob. Jim truly loved all six of his children and was very proud of all of them. Jim loved all of his grandchildren and his great grandchildren. May Jim be at peace with his late wife, Jacqueline and all of his loved ones that preceded him in death. May Jim rest in peace and happiness.

Jim is survived by his six children, Theresa Urban-Drumm, Rhode Island, Sharon (Miguel) Rosalez, Texas, James (Judy) Urban Jr., Wisconsin, Karen (Jerry) Hall, Ohio, Daniel (Tanya) Urban, North Carolina and Bryon Urban, North Carolina; 15 grandchildren; many great grandchildren; two brothers, Michael and John Urban; sister in law, Mary Urban; many other relatives and friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Jacqueline; brother, Robert Urban and his son in law, Michael Drumm.

A celebration of Jim’s life will be held at a later date.
