      Jim was born and raised on a dairy farm just outside of Roseau, MN where he learned to appreciate an honest day’s labor by helping in all aspects of running the family farm. The enjoyment he gleaned from working with his hands would show up again and again throughout his life as many of his hobbies included: woodworking, gardening, building two-story tree houses for his grandkids, and taking apart and putting back together almost every car and tractor he ever owned. Jim loved to talk, as anyone who ever met him found out, but his disarming personality made you feel like you were a good friend who had known him his whole life.

      After finishing high school in Roseau, Jim attended AFLBS and later went to school for carpentry. He would meet, fall in love with, and later marry Sandi (née Olson) on June 23, 1973. For nearly half a century, Sandi was his best friend and will always be the love of his life. The couple would raise their daughters Dawn and Amanda in Colorado, surrounded by the beautiful landscapes they loved to explore when camping, hunting, or both. In 1998, Jim and Sandi moved to Royalton, MN where they lived from then on.

      Jim is survived by his wife, Sandi (née Olson); mother, Melva Loe (née Jenson); daughters and sons-in-law, Dawn (Aaron) Raff of St. Cloud, MN and Amanda (Joseph) Raiche of Vermillion, SD; brother, Paul Loe; sister, Mary Lund (née Loe); and nine grandchildren, Cassie, Ben, Adeline, Victor, Beth, Carissa, Caleb, Andrew, and Isaac.

      Jim was preceded in death by his father, Walter Loe.
