James M. Decker, known to friends as “Jimmy D,” passed away on January 9, 2018, at the age of 61 years.
A native of Fort Dodge, Iowa, Jim attended Iowa State University, graduating with a degree in finance. He was in the insurance field for many years before taking a step back to help with his children’s numerous extracurricular activities. Jim served for numerous organizations, including booster clubs for both his children’s athletics, coaching recreation teams, and other activities.
Jim enjoyed playing golf with his son and friends, fishing (including once catching the World Record for Small Mouth Bass), coaching Cortney’s softball team in the USSSA National Championship, playing games and cards with his grandchildren, and watching the Cowboys. You could always tell when he was in the room.
