Madison - James E. Trochlell, age 53, was born on September 30, 1959 to James W. and Mary (Lison) Trochlell in Green Bay. He worked as an engineering technician at the UW Hospital in Madison. Jim loved to work on big projects - and above all, loved his dog, Sparky, and especially all his brothers and sisters. Building up a big wood pile for his stove was his past-time. He was always willing to lend a helping hand even to complete strangers. Being in the tip of a tree with ropes and saw was his idea of a great day. Jim biked everywhere and met his end (and died of a massive coronary) on the bike path on his way to get Sparky - always the high point of his day.

Jim is survived by his devoted dog, Sparky; siblings, Kathy Trochlell, Tom (Laura) Trochlell, Dan (Dawn) Trochlell, Cindy (Tom) Jocz and Amy Cobb; his Uncle John Ottinger and Aunt Peggy Lison, and Uncle Johnny Lison; his step-father, Cress_Funeral John Cobb; many nieces and nephews; and his special Madison friends. He was preceded in death by his parents. We will miss him so much...
