James Suhajda

James A. Suhajda of LaGrange Park, IL, passed away Saturday September 2, 2023 surrounded by family after a short battle with cancer. He was the beloved husband of Linda Suhajda, née Sklenar; fond father of Christopher (Natalia) Suhajda and Ashleigh (Barron) Seno; dedicated grandfather of Ian, Abby, Luka, Luna, and Remington; loving son of Dennis Suhajda and the late Nancy Suhajda, née Androwich; brother of Kenneth Suhajda, Mark (Michelle) Suhajda, Richard (Eileen) Suhajda, and the late Matthew (the late Louise) Suhajda; and uncle of many nieces and nephews.

Though he was the jack of all trades, Jimmy worked as a studio mechanic where he was able to put his naturally creative mind to work. He met the love of his life, Linda, in 2001 with whom he created a wonderful life, centered around family. Whether relaxing and fishing at the lake or hosting holiday gatherings, Jimmy was, and always will be, the life of the party.
