HURLEY, Wis. - James J. Rady, of Hurley, Wisconsin passed away on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2020, at the age of 88.

Jim was born on Aug. 6, 1932, in Two Rivers. On Sept. 26, 1953, he married Barbara Beverly Bishop. Together they raised four sons and one daughter.

Jim loved fishing and hunting with his sons and grandchildren.

He was involved in many aspects of ministry and served on many community boards throughout his life. His joy came from the Lord, his love for his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
