I've known Jimmy for over 40 years, we worked together at Chevron. Enjoyed
deer hunting with him in Alabama. He truly loved his family and was a great friend. He was proud to be from Dauphin Island, and truly loved it there. My deepest condolences to all his family, as I know he will be deeply missed.
