Jimmy was loved by so many and will be missed by all. Taking the titles of daddy, Uncle Jimmy, and granddaddy, he excelled at all and lived by example. He loved his God, his church, and his family, and that love was returned by everyone that knew him. He never met a stranger and was the first to lend a helping hand, never asking for anything in return. Jimmy loved to fish, rooting on the Crimson Tide and working on anything he could get his hands on. Jimmy was the foundation strength and pillar that we all leaned on. He will always be loved and forever missed.
