James F. Munch


James Franklin Munch, 76, of Grand Haven, passed away Sunday, August 9th, 2020 at his home in Grand Haven, Michigan.

Jim was born and raised in Grand Haven on March 22nd, 1944 to Charlotte and Adolph “Bud” Munch. His siblings are Victor, Robert, and Roger. Jim has two children, David Munch and Laura Ploeg, with his first wife Martha Schneider. In September of 1992, he remarried to Greer McKenzie Munch, which added 3 children to his family; Peter (wife Andrea), Steven (wife Amy), and Vicki (Husband David). Jim was blessed with many grandchildren, including Jacob and Allison, and 8 step-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his mother Charlotte, father “Bud,” and youngest brother Roger.

He greatly enjoyed hunting, fishing, and time outdoors. Most important to him was the time he spent with family. Central in his life was his Lord and Savior. He attended St. John’s Lutheran Church in Grand Haven where he was on the Board of Trustees and an enthusiastic member of a Bible study group.

A graveside service will be held at a later date at Grand Haven’s Lake Forest Cemetery.

In Lieu of flowers, please make any donations to St. Johns Lutheran Church in Grand Haven.
