My wife and I have wonderful memories of Jim. We always appreciated visiting with him when we were at Panera for a meal. We will miss his fellowship in the Lord and his testimony for the Lord. His life reflected the life of Christ in the way he related to us. He was a blessing and will be missed.

Ed and I send our condolences to Jim’s family. It was a pleasure to know Jim and be members of First Baptist , especially the Bible class we shared. We will truly miss Jim. He was always friendly and greeted us with a smile. My fun memory is when I gave Jim a LSU lanyard that I got for him at a SEC weekend in Gulf Shores. He was so happy to get it.

I absolutely loved working at Panera Bread with him. We joked around as we worked. I remember him flirting with the ladies who came in. I will truly miss him.

It was a blessing to have known Jim. We would always greet each other with jokingly calling each other “Old man” & “old Lady” respectfully. Of course during football season we would express our opinions of his LSU Tigers & my Auburn Tigers !
Eastchase Panera had the privilege of Jim as a customer for years before he was hired as a delivery driver & general helper. Jim never minded helping anyone with anything.
He will be greatly missed by everyone at Panera.
My prayers are extended to his family as they mourn the loss of this wonderful man.
God has called an angel home.

It has been a blessing knowing Jim. He was such a kindhearted man who cared about everybody he knew. His attitude and personality was infectious. He had a great sense of humor and loved to kid others. His faith and love for God was immeasurable.
He was in our Bible Fellowship class and our dear brother in Christ. We will miss him very much. Geaux Tigers!

My heart goes out to the Wingfield family and to Jim's friends and work associates. My husband and I had the great pleasure to meet him at Panera's at Eastchase Mall where he was working. He always had a smile and a joke to share and was so welcoming. Back in August 2020, my husband of 37 years passed away unexpectedly. When I next saw Jim after that, he came up and asked me if I had a "church family and how are you doing?" he would always check in with me. He was a dear friend and a caring person and I know that Jim is in a wonderful place - in Heaven! With care and concern for you all, Elaine
