  • So sorry to read this. Jimmie helped me with so many tangled lines and reels that didn’t work and was so kind to all of the little “anglers. Maybe he’s stirring soup or beans up there waiting for the rest of us. Wishing you peace and comfort, Sharon, Ruth, Jamie and David and the rest of his family.

  • There is something special about the people who choose to volunteer their time at Mount Gilead State Park and I’m sure Jimmie shared his love of people and friendship in many ways beyond helping at the park. Everyone we lose is impossible to replace, but the spirit they leave behind brings new people to the team. Thank you Jimmie.
