Jimmy was always making things and erecting things as a child out of everything.
His ability to automatically assemble and modify the pieces to whatever he was working on at the moment improved along with his mechanical mind over the years. He was an expert mechanic who had nearly ten years of experience working on HVAC and refrigeration with TransArctic of Southern Georgia. Jimmy had a great heart that was brimming with affection for his loved ones and friends.
He was always ready to help when it came to home repairs, assisted with automobile maintenance, and especially enjoyed working on his own truck. Jimmy has always enjoyed being outside and riding his motorcycle, dirt bike, and four-wheeler. He would never leave his dog, Sally, a Bulldog mix that he had devotedly loved and cared for many years, home alone.
No matter what horrible of day Jimmy had, Sally was always happy to see him and always welcomed him with care and compassion, and he would always flash her his dazzling smile. James E. and Mary S.
