James Victor was born October 14, 1923 in the Tabor community to James A. and Bessie (Svitak) Sindelar. He was raised on the family farm and continued to farm that land with his son and never fully retired until December of 2013 when he moved to Parkview Nursing Home in Dodge. Jim died at Parkview on Sunday, September 13, 2015.

His early education was in a country school and in 1942 he graduated from Howells High School. On September 22, 1948 he married Agnes Kudera at Holy Trinity Catholic Church Heun. James was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church Tabor until it closed in 2005 and he then became a member of St. John’s Catholic Church in Howells.

He was proud to be a 3rd generation farmer and loved driving the tractors and especially the combine during the harvest. He was an exceptional machinist and an avid welder who made many items for the farm. He raised livestock and was a self- taught taxidermist.
