James “Jim” Moose, 55, of Monona, Iowa died on Saturday, January 23, 2016, at Veteran’s Memorial Hospital in Waukon, Iowa. James Ernest was born on December 11, 1960, to Albert and Marilyn (Timmerman) Moose in Waukon. He was baptized July 16, 1961, at Pilgrim EUB Church in Monona.

Jim was united in marriage with Lesa Reimer on September 21, 1985, at Peace United Church of Christ in Elkader, Iowa. Two sons were born to this union, Jarred and Jordan.  

Jim was happiest when he was working on the farm and was proud of his accomplishments, especially figuring out how to fix things, create things, and repair whatever needed fixing.  Jim enjoyed rebuilding and restoring John Deere tractors. Farming was Jim’s passion. He loved everything about farming and enjoyed working from sun up to sun down. Jim enjoyed tending to his cattle; it was one of the passions he shared with his wife and sons. He was a member of the Waterville Fire Department for over twenty years and was a lifetime member of the Methodist Church in Monona.
