James “Bogie” Bogenreif, passed away peacefully October 29th, at the age of 64, after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s.

Jim Bogenreif was born November 28th, 1957, in Graceville, MN, the son of Ed and Emily (Lillehaug) Bogenreif. He was raised in Breckenridge, MN and graduated from Breckenridge High School in 1978. The city of Breckenridge was blessed to have Jim working with them for 40 years. Jim dedicated his life to working for the citizens of Breckenridge and the water plant, which he loved and prayed for on a daily basis. After retirement, he found a second love in working at St. Francis Medical Center as a volunteer. In his free time, Jim loved woodworking, fishing, hunting, and spending time with his family. 

Jim was survived by the love of his life, Betty, and two children, Mike (Nicky) Bogenreif, Kristy (John) O’Keefe. Jim will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren, Peyton, Madden, Julian, and Jalen, and by his siblings Cathy (Tim) Rice, Gene (Lois) Bogenreif, Sharon (Russ) Olson, Ron (Jill) Bogenreif and sister-in-law, Jodi Bogenreif and brother-in-law Bob Schaible.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents Ed and Emily Bogenreif, sister Mary Schaible, and brothers Bill and Tim Bogenreif.
