Jimmy will be forever in our hearts. Once you knew him you were part of the family. This was a man that loved life and everyone near, he never spoke a bad word about anyone. Once you knew him you were part of the family. He was a great mentor to all and embraced all of the neighborhood kids in his heart. He taught many of us what life was really about. I am grateful for having this family across the street during my childhood years. There are not enough words in this world to express my gratitude for being a part of such a wonderful family. I love you very much. Heaven has another angel to watch over us. May you rest in peace knowing that you hold a special place in so many hearts. Thank you God for blessing me with the love and support of the Bailey family.

Unfortunately I haven’t seen Jimmy in quite a while but I remember him as full of life, love and laughter! Being friends with his daughter Kelly and niece Tracy, made me part of the family for years and Jimmy always treated me that way. He was a wonderful guy and will be missed by all who loved him. Rest In Peace Jimmy! ❤️
