Obituary of James Richard Ertz

James Richard Ertz of St. Louis Park MN, died on April 27, 2023, at the age of 73.  Born on July 5, 1949, in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota,

Jim was a trained and skilled cabinet maker by trade. His passions and hobbies were boating, biking, photography, astrology, space travel, collecting books, and attending events.  Jim would not miss MN's State Fair and would often attend 2 or more days through its 12-day run.  The State Fair always drew huge crowds giving him the perfect opportunity to engage many different people on a variety of topics.  Jim loved everyone and everyone loved Jim.

Jim is preceded in death by parents, Roy and June Ertz; brother-in-law Thomas Warner. 

Jim is survived by his brother Robert Ertz (Diane); children, Ryan (Britt) Ertz, Jenny Ertz (Chris Stolz); sister Susan Warner; children, Kelly (David) Gigerich, Natalie (Morgan) Azbill, John Warner (Aly Haefner); and his many nieces and nephews.

We love and miss you, Jim.
