James J. "Jimmy" Schiller

August 29, 1960 — July 24, 2018

James J. “Jimmy” Schiller, 57, died Tuesday, July 24, 2018 surrounded by his family at the Fond du Lac Lutheran Home after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Fond du Lac on August 29, 1960, a son of Gerald and Mary Jean (Gutreuter) Schiller. Jimmy received an associate’s degree from MPTC and was a veteran of the United States Marine Corps (USMC).



Jimmy loved his family, especially his great-niece, Emerson Mae, who always brought a smile to his face. It was a rare occasion to not see him in his western attire, especially with one of his larger than life belt buckles. Jimmy was passionate about vehicles, building several, including a vintage Bugatti that he built from the ground up. He was a regular at the “Stretch” in North Fond du Lac and had worked at North Main Auto Body for a number of years.



Survivors include his mother, Mary Jean of North Fond du Lac; brother, Tony (Carol) Schiller of Fond du Lac; niece, Becky (Mike) Huberty of Sheboygan; nephew, Brian Schiller of Sheboygan; a great-niece, Emerson Mae Huberty; two aunts, Betty Lichtenwald and Marion (Dave) Sabel, all of Fond du Lac; cousins and friends; and lastly, his nephew-dog, Lambeau. He was preceded in death by his father, Gerald; uncle, Carl Lichtenwald; and his niece-dog, Nitschke



Visitation will be held from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM on Friday, July 27, 2018 at Sacred Heart – Holy Family Parish, 200 S. Peters Ave. in Fond du Lac. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1:00 PM at the church. Cremation will follow the services. Private family burial will take place in Calvary Cemetery at a later date.



The family wishes to extend their most sincere thanks to the staffs of the Agnesian Cancer Center, the Fond du Lac Lutheran Home, St. Agnes Hospital and Marquardt Hospice.
