Great memories with Jimmy here in Az. The laughs were constant and your heart was kind. You will be missed but never ever forgotten just impossible. Rest In Peace friend
I am so sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. I hadn't seen Jimmy in years but still have plenty of memories of when he hung out with our friends and family, he was always easy going and a funny guy. Entertaining for sure and he was so good with the kids, kids loved playing with him he was a big kid himself. Miss you Jimmy, rest in peace
Jimmy, I guess I had to be the first to say how much I will miss you. Over the years we grew to become friends and family. But I could never figure you out. I know you always appreciated the home cooking and being over for most losing Lions football games. Playing those football cards was always fun. You have left us for a better place now and I know your at peace. I loved you Jimmy.
