Jimmy was always so full of life. He enjoyed every minute of it and made sure the ones around him did too! He always liked picking at me and embrassing me. He even felt sorry for me one time and changed the oil in my car. He was married to my first cousin but he always felt like my brother in law. We miss you Jimmy and look forward to the day we see you again

Jimmy made the best smoke Thanksgiving Turkey this side of heaven...we'll never forget when we came to visit after the kids dad passed in 1998. He had us laughing and goofing off around the holiday table and made the day so very special for the kids!

Jimmy was a man of integrity and honor. He treated everyone with respect and dignity. A natural leader with a way letting you know he genuinely cared. Jimmy was always there for me and my family, and I am glade I got to work with him and was able to know him as a friend.

There's so much to tell about this amazing man. Jimmy was loved by most everyone he came in contact with. He was the most tender hearted, kind and loving people you'd ever want to meet. It was such an honor being his wife for almost 14 yrs. Thank you for being in my life! Love U

So after that everytime they invited me to come over I always tell Him don't start cooking until I  got  to your house.And he just laugh at me. Jimmy is  like a Father to me wen I was staying in Columbus , He want to make it sure I am okay ,He know's I miss my family back in Philippines .He always make everybody smile and protected friend  to everyone..

I miss you Jimmy  you make everybody life colorful especially mine....I can't find a friend like you but I always wanted you to know how thankful I am to take care of me wen i was there to stay at your home.we love you always......

Gone fishin!!

Shared by Lisa Eaves on August 16, 2011

Jimmy loved to fish more than anyone I know! And is honestly think that man could catch a fish out of a toilet bowl! We went camping at Town Creek in Clay Co, Mississippi. We alway baited lines early in the morning and went back to check them and rebait them in the evening. It was late evening, almost dark. He was up in the bow of the boat pulling the line up, removing any we may have cought and baiting the vacant hooks. All of a sudden he sucked all the air out of the atmosphere, dropped the line and nearly plowed me over getting to the back of the boat. You would have thought he had pulled "Jaws" himself up out of that water! It was so funny. On that line was one of the largest cat fish I'd ever seen. It was dead of course. It's head was about the size of a basketball. Its mouth was wide open and all you could see was teeth. We teased him forever for being scared of a catfish....Lisa
