He married Catherine Waggoner on December 10, 1977, and they had two daughters, Jill Bauernfeind Weeks and Nina Bauernfeind.
James attended St. Peter Catholic School and Lourdes High School in Oshkosh. After graduation he attended two years of education at Minneapolis Community College for automotive and operational theories. He worked for different car dealerships in management positions ending up as a Service Manager with Nissan. He had a love of cars, trucks, and trains, collecting many models and could be found working on them often.
James enlisted during the Vietnam War, serving with the U.S. Army for three years of active duty and a year in the Army Reserves, working with chemical and biological agents at Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland.
Survivors include his two daughters, Jill and Nina; a grandson, Ben; four sisters, Paula Autry, Barbara Pittack, Maggie Beese, Elizabeth Kromm; a brother, William Bauernfeind; 14 nieces and nephews; many great-nieces and nephews; and many of his friends from dialysis.

I must have been about 8 or 9, Jim around 11 or 12. Mom gave us some money to get a small Christmas tree and ornaments at the Party Shop. I remember walking home with our "treasure" it had just snowed and the snow was all sparkling, in the early evening darkness. I don't know what happened to the tree but the memory is still there. Also remember when you lived in Minneapolis, you had some glue on your shirt from an emblem, you pretended to sneeze and held the shirt up to your face. It looked like you had a booger on it. Mandy saw it and got the dry heaves, "Uncle Jim (gag, gag) are you going to leave that on your shirt?(gag)? Yep, silly times and special times. Love you big brother Betsy

Uncle Jimmy will be missed. His cunning sense of humor mixed with serious details from his past and memories of the people that he loved most were a package to be cherished. I love you, Uncle Jim! Give Mom, AJ and the rest a big hug for me!
