James Hatfield, 50, passed away Wednesday, August 26, 2020.
Jim was born on December 22, 1969 in South Bend to Robert and Judith (Basker) Hatfield. Jim met the love of his life Jennifer(Jenna) Dover in May 2010 at the Linebacker. On February 9, 2018 he married Jenna who survives along with two bonus children Koleton and Kendall Dover, two sisters, Susan(Mike) Husen and Patty Lubelski, brother John Hatfield, Mother and Father in law James and Jeretta King, sister-in-laws Jenny Hatfield, Jeanie(Shane) Smith, Joy(Ken) Worsham and nieces and nephews Ryan, Kyle, Carter, Christine, Ashley, Terri(Dan) Stauffer, Andrew, Marissa(Jon) Good, Natalie, Joshua, Marissa, Aaron, David, Josie, Madison, and Brady and many other friends and family. Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers Gregory and Donald Hatfield, brother in law Mike Husen.
Jimmy was a huge music fan, and nothing made him happier than seeing his favorite bands in concert. If Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Loverboy, The Fixx or dozens of others were playing within 100 miles, you better believe he had tickets. He loved the Chicago Cubs and the Fighting Irish. If Notre Dame was playing at home, you could always count on Jimmy to be tailgating, blasting music for the whole parking lot to hear. For the last 15 years, he owned and operated Jim’s Home Improvement. He was a hard worker that took on each new job with pride. He perfected everything he created. He enjoyed karaoke. He got such enjoyment out of his toys; motorcycles, snowmobiling and had just purchased a boat. A few years ago, he became a cat-dad to his beloved Oscar.
