Jimmy was a kind, funny, and caring guy. Growing up, he and my mother were very close friends so he played a good part in my childhood. Playing at his parents house while he fixed his bikes and trucks will always stick out in my mind. He will be missed by many. Mrs Rogers, I'm so very sorry for your loss.

What can I say about this man so loved by so many people. The stories he told that made me laugh. The loving arguments between him and Rose . Each of us need to celebrate his life . Never take for granted as tommorow is never promised. You will be missed Jimmy but never forgotten in my heart

Being young, the late nights after having a few and eating at my mom’s. The instant mashed potatoes when I kept staring @ the box because I had a few too many and couldn’t read the directions. Later on in life, driving all over the place in your car while you played “Just Give it Away” by George Strait. R.I.P. Jimmy, I’m sure Jamie was waiting for you at the gate❤️😢
