Obituary

James “Jimbo” Condon, age 77, born and raised on a farm in Porter Township and a lifelong Janesville area resident, passed away early Sunday morning, July 19, 2020 surrounded by his family. He was born January 18, 1943 in Janesville, the son of the late Robert L. and Veronica F. (O’Leary) Condon. Jim attended school in Edgerton, and was a graduate of Edgerton High School, Class of 1961.

On September 30, 2006 Jim married the former Kathy Kenseth at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Janesville. He served the public as a bus driver for the Janesville Transit System for 28 years before retiring in 2002. He enjoyed entertaining his passengers with his Irish wit and wisdom as he chauffeured them to their many destinations.

Jim is survived by his wife Kathy, Kathy’s son Stephen Kenseth of North Carolina, brother Allen (Marcia) Condon, special cousin Mary Lynn Fox, 8 beloved nieces and nephews: Debbie (John) Coleman, Diane Condon (Russ), Carol (Kevin) Kaufman, Cristine (Michael) Platts, Todd Condon, Thomas (Annette) Condon, Dennis Condon, and Julie Condon, 15 great nieces and nephews, close family friend and caregiver Lori Kukuk and several other loving family and friends. He was preceded in death by his brother John Condon, sister-in-law Mary Jane Condon, and his parents.

Jim’s zest for sports kept him very active throughout his life. He participated in softball leagues for the Showboat and Rollie’s Roost, bowling leagues and enjoyed golfing. Jim was an avid sports fan paying homage to the Milwaukee Brewers, Wisconsin Badgers, and Green Bay Packers. Loyal fans were always welcomed and treated with warm hospitality at Jimbo’s famed “Lambeau Two” on Pontiac Dr. where good times, great laughs, and beautiful memories were cultivated and cherished while hoping for our team’s victory. He also enjoyed watching NASCAR, especially keeping a close eye on Matt Kenseth’s No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro.

Aside from enjoying wonderful times at home, Jim loved escaping the miserable Wisconsin winters in Arizona with Kathy and close family. He also trekked to the North Woods for Annual “Deer Camp” at his cousins’ cabins in Crivitz where stories of sportsmanship, friendship, and hunting frolics and follies continue to be retold and revered. He also enjoyed many special times with the “Cheers” group.

Jim was committed to community betterment and served as president of the Edgerton Lions Club where he was an active member for over 50 years. He was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Janesville where he enjoyed serving as an usher. He also was a longtime member of the Knights of Columbus and the Loyal Order of Moose.

Jimbo you made quite an impact on me. Yesterday, while walking on the bike trail I saw a blue butterfly. They're my special symbol that I ask for when I need a message from God. That was you, wasn't it? Telling me you're no longer in pain. I wish I had been able to take it all away for you. God sent you into my life to show me a man who is generous, kind, joyful and loving even when he's hurting. You reminded me to be grateful and to love a little more...give from the heart and live life out loud. I will never forget you.
with love,
Emmie

My childhood has Jimbo painted throughout it. From the time I can remember being a blonde pigtailed little toddler waving to him from my tricycle as he drove by in the bus, taking my first solo trip on the bus across town (which he got out and walked to my transfer), getting my driver's license, graduating high school and watching me walk down the aisle to get married. He has always been in my picture to congratulate me along the way. Despite not being family, I always knew I held a place in his heart from little girl to grown woman. I will miss him greatly. Heaven has gained a true angel and I know I will continue to have him watching over me.
