James J Cirilli

October 11, 1964 — July 10, 2022

James J Cirilli peacefully passed away on July 10, 2022 at the age of 57. Jim was born to this world on October 11, 1964 in Rhinelander, WI the last child of 5 to Alfred (Freddie} and Dorothy Cirilli. At the time of his passing Jim was rehabbing at Colonial Manor in Wausau, WI.

Jim will always be remembered for his gentle heart, kind words and charmingly dry but soft wit. He never would hesitate to talk to anyone or offer a hand. Jim would befriend anyone who crossed his path. He worked 15 plus years at Lakeland High School at various positions all the while doing what Jim does... talking, joking, and caring. He will always be "Jim" in our hearts, forever loved and dearly missed. He struggled toward the end with multiple health issues but you would never know it to talk to him. He never complained. A true pleasure to be around.

Jim is survived by his siblings Kathleen of Colorado Springs, CO, Michael (Denise Bassett) Cirilli of Minocqua, WI, David Cirilli of Chicago, IL and Carol Cirilli of Armstrong Creek, WI.

A quiet celebration of life will be held for Jim at a later date.
