Jimmy and Jeanette have been our neighbors for years and Jimmy always greeted us with a smile and a helping hand. He was an avid fisherman and family man who enjoyed life. He was surrounded by a wonderful and supportive family and had a wife that took great care of him. We will miss our cheerful friend-God Bless- The Murray family--
