Age 75 of Cottage Grove passed away on September 4, 2022. Born July 13th, 1947, in International Falls, MN to William H. and Beverly (Blumer) Culbertson. Jim had a passion for hunting and gunsmithing but could usually be found in his workshop tinkering around listening to the “oldies.” After graduating from Carlton High School in 1965, he started a job in printing with the Carlton County Vidette. This was the start of a 40+ year career in printing. He retired from the St. Paul Pioneer Press in 2007.


He is preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his former wife Deb; daughter, Nicole (Sean); grandchildren, Devin and Elyssa; sister Charlene (Bernard) Bateson; brother, William J.
