James Cizek was born in Chicago, Illinois to Nina and George Cizek and joined the Navy in 1945 where he served on the U.S.S. Haven during World War II. After his discharge from the service, Jim married his high school sweetheart, Alice Taylor, on November 18, 1947 and they moved to Bridgeview, Illinois. He soon joined the Bridgeview Volunteer Fire Department that sparked his career in the firefighting profession. Jim later joined the Oak Park Fire Department, advancing to the rank of Lieutenant. During this time, he earned a Bachelor's of Art in Fire Sciences from Southern Illinois University and became an Oak Park Fire Inspector.
After 20 years of service, Jim retired from the Oak Park Fire Department in January 1984 and moved with his wife to St. George, Utah where they lived until 1999, when they moved to join family in Tucson, Arizona. Jim's wide range of interests included golfing, archeology, writing, music, the International Drum and Bugle Corps, and carpentry. He was an avid Civil War buff and loved nature and the outdoors. He will be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor, his kindness, his strong sense of doing the right thing and his lust for life.
