James Lee Schwindt was born in Baker, Montana February 7, 1956 to Frank and Marjorie Olsen Schwindt. He attended First Grade in Plevna, Second and Third Grades in Baker, Fourth Grade in Plevna, and the rest of his school years in Laurel. In 1976, he married Judy Bennett in Billings. Together they had three boys: Jeremy (Waco, TX), Jason (Billings), and Jerad (Billings). Jeremy has a daughter and a son. Jason has three daughters and two sons. These grandkids gave Jim the joy of his life. He never stopped talking about any of them. Jim loved his boys and grandchildren to the very end. He very much enjoyed old country music with his family and friends, and played a pretty good guitar and fiddle. He loved to sing along with his brother Terry and always looked forward to a visit and jam session. Jim spent his life working in the Laurel/Billings area most of his life. He retired in 2018 and really enjoyed and looked forward to his Social Security check every month, which was well earned. Jim was preceded in death by his parents, one brother, and one sister. He is survived by ten brothers and sisters. He had very close friends who he loved: KD, Ronnie, and Rita, along with many more. Jim’s very large extended family will Miss and Love him forever and will never forget him. God Bless you Jim, we all Love you.
