  • I have fond memories of Jimmy when he worked at CCRC. I worked with him and admired his way with people and food. He had a ready smile and was well thought of with staff and residents. He treated residents well, and they appreciated that.
    I’m so glad that I had the privilege of knowing and working with Jimmy. I’m so sad that he is gone at such an early age. My sympathies to the family members.

  • Sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I will always remember his as a f unloving guy who enjoyed golf, his extended and immediate family, and life in general. Please accept Suzi and I’s prayers during this sad time.

  • Well, what do I say! Some of our times spent together were few and far between but anytime we talked we always caught back up with each other. Of course we always talked about when we were kids and shucking the corn, Garvin Park and just talking. When I hear Blake Shelton’s song , “I Lived It”, it makes me think about those times! I wasn’t ready for you to leave but I will see you again! Love and miss you!

  • We are going to miss you buddy. You made a lot of people happy with your cooking, your jokes, and your smile. We will always think of you when we watch the Browns or listen to Elvis! Rest In Peace Jimmy.
