James Mohawk Obituary

James Mohawk

James Lloyd Mohawk, 82, of Libby, Montana, died Dec. 14, 2023.

Jim was born April 23, 1941, in Alexandria, Minnesota, the fourth child of Lewis and Alyce

Mohawk. He was raised in Alexandria and Longville, Minnesota. After graduating from high

school and before entering the U.S. Navy, Jim met LuEllen Metcalf. Jim and Lu were married in

1961. The couple raised three children, moving from Minnesota to Libby in 1977. He was an

electrician who operated his own business in Libby for many years.

Jim was an avid fisherman and sportsman who loved to share his love for the outdoors – and

fishing especially – with his children and grandchildren. He was a notorious prankster who

loved to tell a good joke, and some bad ones too, and he passed along his wit to some of the

subjects of those jokes. Jim wrote love messages in the snow to his wife and mailed Christmas

trees across the country to his kids and grandchildren.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents, siblings Arlita, Ronald, Lewis and Wilfred. He is

survived by his sister Janette; his wife; children Tamara (David) Robinson, Derek Mohawk and

Laura (Kenneth) McCrohan; and grandchildren Nathan, Joshua, Lauren, Jacob, Molly and


Jim’s family is planning a private remembrance at a later date. The family thanks the

ambulance, emergency and hospital staff for their exceptional care for Jim in his last days.
