Jimmie Brosam

Jimmie Carroll Brosam, Jr. was born October 30, 1960, in San Diego, California to Virginia Mae (Bowman) and Jimmie Carroll Brosam, Sr.

In May of 1981 Jimmie was united in marriage to Debbie Repp in Red Oak, Iowa. Jimmie and Debbie later divorced. He worked for the Amana Colonies building furniture for many years and was featured in Midwest Living magazine. For the last 25 years Jimmie worked for the University of Iowa as a carpenter.

Jimmie loved to fish, went coon hunting in his younger years, dancing, listening to music, gardening, wood working, loved Hawkeye football and tailgating. He was a funny, kind, and generous man, who always had a smile on his face.

Jimmie didn't always get to spend as much time with family as he would have liked to, but every Mother's Day he visited his mom to plant flowers for her to look at and enjoy.
He passed away July 21, 2021, at his home in Iowa City. He was preceded in death by his parents; his uncle Merrill "Butch" Bowman.

Left to cherish Jimmie’s memory are his kiddos Tiffany (husband Andrew) Petersen of Ames and Danielle (fiancé Dustin) Brosam of Des Moines; four grandchildren; sister Angi (husband Dennis) Smith of Mount Ayr; brother Dale Brosam of Mount Ayr; many neices, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

I knew Jimmie from the hospital. We was so kind. I am sorry for your loss. Donna Gentry

Im sorry to see that Jimmie has passed away. I met your dad many moons ago when I helped him buy his current home and sell his former home. He took on a house and made it his home. His projects were all very much needed, and he turned around the yard. His neighbors loved his green thumb! Take care- Terri Larson

Sorry to hear Jim has passed, it was always a bright spot in my day to visit with him in the hospital. Rest In Peace.

I'm so very sorry for your loss and saddened to learn of Jimmie's death. Jimmie was a very fun person, who would stop by my office at the U of I to shoot the BS. What a nice, funny, sweet guy he was. I remember him fondly. My deepest sympathy to his family.

I was a bartender at 'Charlies' in Coralville and he would come in to play pool. He was very polite, and respectful. I always enjoyed seeing him walk in the door. He always had a big smile and would shake my hand. I'm very sorry for your loss. It hit me hard.

Oh Jimmy, you always brought a smile to my face.. what a great person you were. I'm so sad to hear this as I thought you were doing well. God has a plan for each of us and someday the Class of 1980 will be together once again...RIP old friend

Teresa Andrews Crecelius Jul 30 2021 12:00 AM

We are sorry to learn of the death of Jimmie. We look forward to seeing him alive again in the resurrection. Jesus promised, "Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life." John 5:28, 29

Jim & Donna Adams Jul 30 2021 12:00 AM

I don't think I've ever met anyone that enjoyed life more than Jimmie. No matter the occasion, he kept the atmosphere light with his infectious laugh. The world is definitely a lot less happy without him.
