Jim was born on July 23, 1956 at OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, IL. He leaves to cherish his memory the love of his life, Margie K. (Zindt) Nellas, whom he married on September 22, 1979 in Peoria, IL.

Surviving Jim is his daughter, Nicole E. Nellas, her fiancé, Anthony M. Morales, and his one grandson, Cameron James Nellas, all to whom he was an extremely devoted husband, father and grandpa.

Jim was preceded in death by his father, Thomas L. Nellas, and his mother and father-in-law, Bob and Eileen Zindt. Also preceding in death were his grandparents and several aunts and uncles.
