He is survived by; sister Sandra Mooney of Tool, brother Bobby Lehew and wife Beth of Tyler, sister Paula Smith and husband David of Trinidad, brother-in-law Danny Bruce Davis of Kemp, special friends Johnny and Mary Murphy, numerous nieces, nephews, other loving family members, and many more friends.

August 3, 2019
Jimmy moved in with us in October of 2017 and God blessed us so abundantly with Jims presence. We had so much fun, and for a little sister to be able to share her adult years with her big brother was a great priviledge. We laughed and had a great time until December of 2018 and he started to go downhill. On May 31st he left our home and went into the hospital and never came back home again. This is the most difficult thing I have ever dealt with in my life and saying "good-bye" to him is just not possible. I love my brother with a love that is undescribable, both of them, and Jimmy will be greatly missed. I have so many memories in our home. I know that God brought Jim to us for just this time in his life so we could care for him and be there for him. I am grateful that my brother is no longer suffering.
