James (Jim) Lee Kammerzell was born August 4, 1960. James unexpectedly passed on April 3, 2020 to join his mother, Dorothy Kammerzell, his father Ralph Kammerzell, brother Larry Kammerzell, brother-in-law Steven Benson, and niece Tamara Lambert in heaven. He leaves behind four siblings Lynette Lambert, Theresa (Ronald) Cummings, Karen Benson and Timothy (Luanne) Kammerzell.

James worked as a sanitation worker for the City of Billings for over twenty years. He used to joke that one man’s trash was another man’s treasure; he shared those treasures with many throughout the years. He took after his father, Ralph, in leaving this world a better place with upcycling and recycling.

James was the crazy uncle that all of his nieces and nephews loved (Lisa Smith, Kimberly Kuntz, Jennifer Benson, Christopher Benson, Kathleen Benson, Jonathan Benson, Tyler Kammerzell and Ashley Drumheller). He created many lasting memories with his family. James also adored his great nieces and nephews.
He was an avid outdoorsman. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, four wheeling and motorcycling. James enjoyed spending time with the kids and teaching them to fish and hunt. He enjoyed wheeling, dealing and antiquing.

We will miss the stories that he shared with us along the way. He was truly the man who would do anything for anyone. James will forever be in the hearts of many. In the words of James, “I love you man”.
Celebration of life will occur at a later date.

I am so sorry for your loss Theresa and for your family's loss. Your brother sounds like he was a wise man to recycle and reuse and to care about his work with passion. His love of teaching children the finer things in life will live on forever in his memory. My deepest condolences to you all. Hugs and love.
