I’ll always remember Uncle Jimmy for being the life and excitement to the party. He always had a joke to tell to make everyone around him laugh!
So many funny, crazy memories I’ll always have of him while growing up! Like the time he convinced me to eat a snail because it supposedly tasted like chicken! Hahaha- yeah right! That was the first and ONLY time I ever made that mistake! I sat there in disgust, gagging, and wondering HOW in the heck he was eating the rest of that slimy batch like they were the best thing he ever made!
Speaking of the best thing he ever made... Can anyone disagree with me that Uncle Jimmy made thee absolute BEST steaks ever?! I think he ate a steak everyday for awhile! He was always in the kitchen at Grandma’s house frying up a steak! And to this day, I’ve never really liked steak because none I’ve had have ever remotely compared to how good I remember his being!! Journey is a steak lover and I’ve always told her she only likes the ones she’s had because she was never lucky enough to have Uncle Jimmy fry one up for her!
I remember being the flower girl in his wedding when I was like 5, hangin out at his house on the weekends as I got older, and babysitting his wife’s kids when I was a teenager, and we always had fun over there!
One fond memory of him that I’ve always held close to my heart is from when my dad passed away. We were standing at the cemetery and Uncle Jimmy was the only one who noticed and acknowledged that I was about to completely lose it and burst into tears. It was probably one of the few times I saw an emotional side to him, but he walked over to me, put his arm around me and told me it was gonna be ok, and he stayed that way for the rest of time we were there!
I know we all have some great, and many funny memories of him! He will definitely be missed by anyone who had the chance to know him!!
RIP Uncle Jimmy!!

It’s been a very long time but you were always in my thoughts. Wondered where you were. What you were up to. Married? Kids? We had a lot of good, fun times growing up on W44. Was so proud that you were in my wedding party!! Just bumming around the neighborhood or cruising northeast Ohio on our makeshift bikes. Time separated us but can’t keep our thoughts of old times away!! I’ll always be “Parma Frank” 🤣🤣. And you’ll always be “Obes”. I’ll keep thinking about you and you have all my prayers 🙏. We will meet again someday 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
