Jimmy was an outgoing person who always had a smile on his face. Jimmy had a heart of gold. He loved the Lord, people and especially his brother and sister-in-Law. He loved his dogs, Minnie and Pearl. After graduating from High School at Belle, Mo, Jimmy went to work at the City of Rolla, in the Highway Traffic Division. After retirement, he enjoyed living on his farm, which had been in the family for many years. He loved music and loved playing his guitar. When singing, or whenever Jimmy saw you, he always had a big, hello and called you by name. He attended Liberty Church of Christ in Belle, MO, when his health permitted. Jimmy never wanted to be a burden to anyone, and always appeared upbeat and content, even during his weekly phone visits with his brother, Jimmy never told him of his serious health problems until the end. Jimmy entered into his eternal home where he can sing in the heavenly choir. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.
