Had the privilege of being Jimmy’s pastor, visit in his home, talk motorcycles and my Sturgis ministry which he always wanted to hear, and worship with him at the “New” DeHaven Baptist Church—2006-2013–as their first pastor. Through all of this, I witnessed his kind attitude, appreciation, and concern for friends & Godly Matters! 💇‍♂️💚🤲

Jimmy & his family lived in the house next door to me in Buckner when I was growing up. Great family & Jimmy cut my hair many times when he had his barber shop in LaGrange. The World Lost a Great Friend. God Bless & Rest in Peace.
