Obituary

James Edwin Kilgo of Cape Coral, Florida, passed away on Thursday, June 17, 2021. He was 66 years old. James was born on September 26, 1954, in Albertville, Alabama, to John Wesley Kilgo and Doris Jo Roe Kytle.

He proudly served our country for 21 years in the United States Army. He was an avid Kentucky Wildcats fan and would travel from Florida to watch football and basketball games. During his earlier years, he loved to play golf and would also play for charity. He was a country music fanatic.

There are many wonderful things that Jim will be remembered for, especially the kind and loving person he was. He dearly loved his friends and family.

He had an outgoing personality and was truly loved and appreciated by everyone who knew him. He never met a stranger and would quickly make friends as if he would have known them for years. He loved having fun and always made people feel at ease. Martina, first his friend then wife of 20 joyful years, was his best friend, soul mate and the love of his life. Anyone who knew him could see his love for her and the life they had together.

Jim leaves behind his loving wife, Martina Kilgo, to whom he almost was never apart from (unless he was traveling for the Kentucky Wildcats!); son, Benji (Lisa) Bright of Arab, Alabama; daughter, Denise Roth of Mannheim, Germany; nephew, Billy Ray Roe of Albertville, Alabama; sisters-in-law, Karin Bergamelli and Antje Bergamelli of Freiburg, Germany; mother-in-law, Rosemarie Bergamelli of Freiburg, Germany; grandchildren, Anna-Claire, Regan and Samantha, special friends, Suzanne Sherer, Stephanie Vitilie, Gordon Andress and Jim’s best friends for many decades, Steve Bonta and George Ray.

Jim will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
