   James Neisz, age 49 of Arthur, IA, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, April 12, 2018, at Horn Memorial Hospital in Ida Grove, IA. 
   James Vernon Lee Neisz was born on September 23, 1968, in Valparaiso, IN, to parents Nicholas and Carol (Johnson) Neisz. He grew up in Indiana and went to school in Glen Mills, PA, graduating in 1987.
   On April 3, 1992, James married the love of his life, Tanya Donahue, in Michigan City, IN. James has eight children: Casey, Andy, Joey, Justin, Elena, Melody, Cheyenne, and Autum. 
   James loved many things in life…fishing being one of them. Fishing any chance he could get was a true passion of his. He also enjoyed anything to do with cars old and new. James drove truck most of his life and had currently been doing so. Gathering with his family and friends brought great joy to James. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
