Dr. James Ernest Kitzner passed away on Friday, November 6, 2020 at the age of 69 with nary a gray hair on his head. He was so fortunate to enjoy 22 years of retirement and a wonderful 17 years here in Franklin with his wife Carol and many dear friends. He succumbed to the horrible ravages of Lewy Body Dementia and COVID Pneumonia after an eight-year decline caused by Parkinson's Disease. It has been a long goodbye. We will all miss his wit and brilliant mind and his kind and loving heart.

Macon Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

My heart and prayers go out to each of you. Jimmie was always a bright light in our presence. His engaging smile, bubbling attitude, and endless energy was forever present as a kid when we were all growing up. He was always ready for a game of tag or football with the cousins. We all knew he was smart but not just how smart his university years proved. Many excellent accomplishments and service in his vet clinic but not enough years of enjoyment of life in his later years. We appreciated his trip to White River with his dad, Ernie, for fishing and his trip back with his father in law for partridge hunting. There was lively conversation and much reminiscing about times in Michigan. Jimmy would never have wanted to be a burden on anyone. He was a fiercely independent person but sensitive to others feelings. My hats off to you Carol for your years of care and devotion to Jim. I am certain that Jim would appreciate it whether or not he was able to communicate that appreciation. This family isn't big on expressing their feelings. It couldn't have been easy for you or Jim, knowing he was loosing his physical independence and communicative skills. What an awful disease Parkinson's is! May he be at peace now. We wish we had gotten to your place, Carol, while Jimmie was still alive. We will stop by when ever this pandemic allows us to travel and to cross the boarder again. Our love and prayers go out to all of you! Jeanne and Kevin Morgan

I was so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I knew Jim while he was working at Coweeta Lab, and he was always a pleasure to around, and we appreciated his willingness to share his knowledge about animals. Carol Harper
