Jimmy was born June 30, 1956 in Coteau to the late Leo Paul Dore’ and the late Hilda Bodin Dore’.

Being with family, sitting outside having an ice cold Miller Lite, and just having a good time was a great day to him. His memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. Rest easy Jimmy. Until we meet again.
