When the universe asked “what is your idea of the perfect human being?”, we spoke and they created our Dad. During the quiet hours of December 10th, 2022, James Burns Studwell (JB, Jimmy, Jim) left this earth. He went in peace surrounded by those who loved him with such intensity….with many people waiting in line to meet him on the other side. JB lived the most beautiful life. Just shy of his 96th birthday, his sole mission was to create a family that wanted for nothing and taught us along the way the important things in life – love, the importance of family, compassion, truthfulness, humor, and joy.

JB is survived by his four adoring children – Bill Studwell (Candy), Scott Studwell (Jenny), Andy Studwell Alstad (Greg), and Sally Studwell Fedolfi (Mike). Seven beautiful grandchildren – Jason Studwell, Matthew Studwell, Jessie Nalezny (Nick), Samantha Studwell, Jack Studwell (Abby), Drew Fedolfi (Collin), and Marshall Fedolfi (Leanna). Five amazing great-grandchildren – Logan Studwell, Penny May Ryan Bauer, JJ Nalezny, Janie Nalezny, and Jackson Nalezny. Preceded in death by the love of his life, Barbara Studwell.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date this year. All contributions can be made in his honor to Habitat For Humanity, a place that brought him such joy when he retired.

Dad…you and Mom are together again. While you are leaving huge holes in our hearts we know that over time, they will be filled with memories to take us through our moments of heartache.

“Grief never ends, but it changes. It is a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness nor a lack of faith, it is the price of love.”
