RETZLAFF James Patrick
"Jimmy" of Flint, passed away unexpectedly, March 17, 2017 at 50 years of age. Beloved soul mate of Christine “Cat” for 7 years; step father of Terrance Treichelt; son of Stephen (Sarah) Retzloff and the late Beverly Retzloff. Also survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, step sisters and friends. Jim was a veteran of the US Army. He was an over the road truck driver for 20 years and was a proud member of the Brethren of the Great Lakes. Jim will always be remembered as “the tall man, who was bigger than life”. He was a fun loving jokester, who enjoyed camping, traveling with Cat, and sharing a pint with his Renaissance family. The love he and Cat shared was to “the moon and back”, a fairy tale of dreams that for them came true.
