Jim Behrent, age 69 of Kaukauna, was prepared to meet his Lord, and it was his Lord who called him home on August 19, 2022 at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton. Jim was born in that very same hospital on September 26, 1952, son of the late Lawrence and Betty (Peters) Behrent. Following his graduation from high school and because of a strong love of his country Jim entered and served in the United States Marine Corps.
He had a huge heart and was loving and kind to all animals – even the local neighborhood strays. His youthfulness shined through at those times he got out his BB guns and shot at targets. Jim was a dedicated worker in his younger years and always loved watching movies, especially westerns.
If you knew Jim, you also know about the love he had for his children and his Lord. He was a dedicated father, son, and brother who always placed his children first and simply adored his grandchildren. He was proud of his children and their accomplishments, and he made certain that they knew and loved the Lord, and maintained a strong relationship with Jesus.
Jim is survived by his three children: Samantha Behrent (Gerhard) and her children Ryleigh and Nicolas; Hollie Behrent (Erick), and Alexander Behrent; a sister Debra (Paul) Jacobs; a brother John (Robin) Behrent, as well as many other relatives, nieces, nephews, and friends. Jim was preceded in death by his parents, and brothers Mark and David.
The Christian Funeral Service for Jim will be held at 11:00 AM on Thursday, September 1, 2022, at the Wichmann Funeral home, located at 537 N. Superior Street in Appleton, with Rev. Kurt Mau officiating.
