Jim Kreighbaum, 63, of Lakeland, Florida, passed away peacefully Sunday, May 12, 2019.

He was born July 12, 1955, at Danville, Indiana, the son of the late Harry and Marge Kreighbaum.

He was a loving dad to his five children, a father-like role model to countless others and an inspiring friend to many. He loved God and his church. Jim will be most remembered for his laid back go-with-the-flow attitude and charismatic sense of humor.

He is survived by Shereé Barton, the love of his life; his children — his pride and joy— sons, Ty (Shannon) Kreighbaum and Gabriel (Heather) Kreighbaum, and daughters, Stephany (Shawn) Condra, Kelli (Nick) Lambiase and Katelyn (Myriam) Tello; five granddaughters; three grandsons; and one great-grandson.

A celebration of life will be held at 4 p.m. on his birthday, July 12, 2019, at River Hills Golf Club, Valrico, Florida. A reception will follow the celebration. The family welcomes colorful casual and or golf attire.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sammy Sullivan House, https://akidsplacetb.org/Our-Campus/Sammy-Sullivan or Good Shepherd Hospice, Lakeland, Florida.
