James (Jim) E. Schleicher, of Lake, passed away at the age of 92 on Monday, May 20, 2019 at Prestige Place in Clare, MI. He was born December 22, 1926 in Detroit, the son of Carl and Emma Schleicher. Jim joined the Merchant Marines during WWII immediately after graduating from East Detroit High School. He loved being at sea and enjoyed the many ports he visited while sailing completely around the world. He returned home to marry his high school sweetheart, Dolores. In 1950 he graduated from the Detroit Police Academy and worked his way through the ranks up to Detective Sergeant. Jim retired in1976 and they built a home on 40 acres in Lake, MI. Hundreds of trees were planted on the once pasture land, he gardened, raised chickens, and maintained manicured trails throughout his little piece of paradise. During those retirement years he was elected as a Coldwater Township Trustee and also served as Sexton. Jim is survived by his daughter Nancy Burkhart and her husband Steve Otte; his son Jim and wife Sharon; granddaughter Laura Schleicher; great-grandson Seth Burkhart; and his siblings Robert Schleicher and Thomas Schleicher. He is predeceased by his wife Dolores and grandson James Burkhart. A celebration of life memorial gathering will be located at his daughter’s home at 2241 Oakridge Dr., Farwell, on June 15th at 1PM.

We were saddened to read about Jim’s passing. May the many treasured memories sustain you during this most difficult time. And may you find comfort in our Creator’s promises to reunite us with our beloved ones again, in a world where the causes of pain and sorrow will be a thing of the past. How exciting it will be to see him and Delores again doing all things they loved. Forever find comfort reading Isaiah 25:8, which promises that our tears of mourning will end when death is done away with. Our sincerest condolences to the Family.

Many condolences to Jim’s family! I worked a prestige place from 2016-2017 and absolutely loved Jim! He never failed to make me smile. He even held my newborn son and smiled! I’ll miss him! He was a favorite resident of mine and I’ll forever cherish my memories of him
