He spent most of his youth breaking horses and at Junior Rodeos. Jimmy was a very friendly person who liked to talk, liked to laugh, loved coffee and Dr. Pepper. He enjoyed walking and was known around town for his walking. He was a faithful attendee of many different churches; which one he would attend on any given Sunday was always a surprise. He was Emmalleta’s favorite son and LeeAnna’s best friend.

Jim has been my friend forever and I will remember his laugh forever. May he "REST IN PEACE" and his family family "find comfort in their cherished memories until they meet again". My deepest sympathy. GOD BLESS ALL.
