Jim Stifter ~ recent

Jim was born June 11, 1949, in Spokane to James and Martha Stifter. Jim passed away at his home in Richland on April 23, 2013.

Jim was a life long resident of Richland. He graduated from Col-Hi in 1967, then went on to serve in the US Navy. He proudly worked as an IBEW Journeyman Lineman for over 30 years, which took him all the way to Antarctica and Alaska until his retirement.

Jim enjoyed his Mexico vacations, koi pond, fishing, boating and his granddaughter Taryn.

He was preceded in death by his father, James E. Stifter.

Jim is survived by his mother, Martha Stifter, son, Anthony Stifter, daughter Katie Stifter and his granddaughter Taryn. He is also survived by his siblings Mark ('69) and wife Carmen, Dr. Shawn Stifter ('72) and wife Naomi and Sylvia ('76) and husband Guy Klunker; along with many nieces and nephews who - we are sure - will all miss being teased by their "Uncle Jimmy".

Services will be held at Einan's Monday April 29, 2013 at high noon with a graveside service immediately following at Sunset Memorial Gardens.

There will be a viewing Sunday April 28th from 2-5 pm.
