He was born March 4, 1943 in Halstead, KS to Windon Senn Sr. and Dorothy (Milne) Senn.

Jim married Jeanie Gronau on February 27, 1965 in Newton, KS.

He was a retired Department of the Army, Supervisory Equipment Specialist and farmer. Although he spent 30 years maintaining and repairing equipment for the United States Army, his go to solution to repair equipment on the farm was frequently to get a, “bigger hammer”.

He is survived by his wife, sons, Michael (Stephanie Gibson), Troy (Diane) and Shane (Jessi) all of Newton, KS; grandchildren, Elizabeth (Colt) Pfautz of Hesston, KS, Brittany Senn, McKenzie (Clayton) Spencer, Annika Senn, Jakob Senn, Lillian Senn and Leah Senn, all of Newton, KS; great-grandchildren, Paxton, Bristol, Kaiden and Rylan Pfautz; sisters, Bonnie Mason of Sedgwick, KS and Patricia Asher of Newton, KS; brother, Marvin Senn of Woodville, TX.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and brother Windon Senn, Jr.

Memorial service will be at 11:00 AM, on Monday January 3, 2022 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, 421 S. Ash, Newton KS. Family will be present one hour prior to the service. Graveside service will follow at St. Mary Cemetery in Newton, KS.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, masks will be required for all those that attend.
