Linda and Family,
We are saddened that Jimmy has passed. I remember back to the stories that my dad told about the adventures he and Jimmy had in their "younger" days. And I remember the days he spent with my dad while is was going through his last days. Jimmy was good to my dad. And I will never forget that. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.

Brian and Millie Hartis

Classmate and friend during 12 years at Matthews High School and East Mecklenburg High School.
Both families attended First Baptist Church in Matthews. I attended many services with my Aunts.
Years later working on East Meck classs 50 and 60 year reunion, I reconnected with Jimmy and Linda. Was unsuccessful in getting them to attend our reunion.
He was his own special person. He will be missed by many friends.
