Spielmaker, James Michael

James Michael Spielmaker, age 53, of The Colony, Texas went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on May 8, 2017. Born on January 25, 1964 in Grand Rapids Michigan.

Jim is survived by his Wife Sherrie Spielmaker, Step-Daughter Stephanie Carr, Step- Daughter Kelsey Curry and Step-son Lane Curry, Grandson Kyland, his sisters Sherry Spielmaker Klud, Patricia Perry, and all his many nieces and nephews.

Jim was referred to around The Colony as MacGyver, a walking encyclopedia; that person who could build a rocket ship from a paper clip and a toothpick.   He was the go to person for many young men and women here in The Colony and surrounding areas for vehicle repairs, sound systems and general life advice. Many looked up to him like a father.   He was a wealth of knowledge gone to soon. He lived life to the fullest and always with a smile. Jim had a huge heart who passionately loved his wife, Step Children, nieces, nephews, and so many more. Jim touched many lives and hearts and will be loved and missed by all who knew him.

A celebration of his life is scheduled for 6:30 P.M., Thursday, May 11, 2017 at Lakeway Baptist Church located at 4000 N. Colony Blvd, The Colony, Texas 75056

My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!
