Jimmy was a special man that will be dearly missed by me. He was like a step dad to me and always there for me when I needed him. He would pick my car up for me and get tires put on my car when I was stuck at work. He brought us donuts at least three times a week and was always there for not only me but my whole family. We love you Jimmy and I will always miss you being in my life. 🌹

So sad to hear of cousin Jimmy's passing. I will always remember his happy face when he saw his family members and always had a compliment for you. God be with his family. We will miss him.

Sorry to hear about Jimmy's passing. I remember him when I was younger every early morning at my aunts house sitting at the table drinking his coffee before work. He had a dry but funny sense of humor and I remember his deep laugh. My condolences to his family.

Oh Jimmy, I can't believe you are gone. I met you when I was 15 and I have always considered you as my uncle. You have helped us out so many times during the years with Michael and the girls, when we couldn't get anywhere you were there to help us go to the store or bring firewood so we wouldn't freeze.
You have a special place in my heart and always will.
