Jimmy had retired from the Bryan Sausage Company and as custodian at the First Baptist Church in Farmerville and was a Vietnam Veteran having served in the United States Army. He loved working with wood and always had a project going. He was very talented when it came to building anything out of wood, from swings and chairs to cedar chests and birdhouses. If you wanted it, he could build it. Jimmy loved living on the lake, riding on his pontoon boat and spent many hours fishing from the dock. He would always give his catch to any of his many friends.
